Growing organically? : human networks and the quest to expand organic agriculture in New Zealand
This study looks at how human networks – specifically information networks, and market networks – are shaping organic production across New Zealand. Through case studies of three large-scale commercial organic sectors, this report examines how organic production has grown in the past, in order to make recommendations for future programs and policies. The case studies are: mixed arable cropping in Canterbury, apple orcharding in Hawke's Bay, and dairy farming in the Waikato.
