Feeding the world’s growing population
New Zealand’s reputation as a quality food producer is growing.
The Fertiliser Association of New Zealand promotes and encourages responsible and scientifically-based nutrient management.
The Action Plan has been developed by a governance group of representatives from the primary sectors, regional councils and the Primary Industries and Environment Ministries. It encompasses 21 principles, target and practices around nutrient and effluent management, water use and irrigation, as well as waterway, land and soil protection.
The Action Plan’s purpose is to accelerate the uptake of good farming practices for improving water quality, to measure and demonstrate this uptake, to assess the impact and benefit of those farming practices, and to communicate progress to the wider public.
You can find the Action Plan, a one-page summary of the principles and plan, background information and practical examples on the Federated Farmers website.
