New Horticultural Survey: July 2000

New Horticultural Survey: July 2000


New Horticultural Survey

Statistics New Zealand's first horticultural survey in four years goes out to over 20,000 growers this week.

The survey, run on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, focuses on land use and particular crops such as fruit, vegetables, grapes, olives, herbs and nuts. A question on organic farming is also being included for the first time.

"Horticulture makes a significant contribution to both employment and export earnings," says Deputy Government Statistician Ian Ewing. "It's really important to have up-to-date information on the industry and how it's changing. That's why we're asking people to return the forms by 23 August."

Mr Ewing notes that data from the survey will be used by central and local government in economic forecasting, trade negotiations, regional planning and policy development, and by businesses in their planning and investment.

Provisional results are scheduled for release in February 2001.

"I would like to thank growers for the time and effort they put into completing the questionnaires," said Mr Ewing. "This survey is reliant on grower co-operation and goodwill and we appreciate that."
