This survey is the seventh major survey of New Zealand Farmer Intentions and Opinions. All have been aimed at providing policy makers and those in the agri-business sector in New Zealand with data on which they can formulate policies and planning. The surveys have been continued in response to demands from those who want data on what farmers are intending to do, what they are thinking on major issues, how they are fairing on the financial side and what are some of the factors that determine their input purchases. In this survey were inserted special questions on financial matters raised in earlier surveys. In addition included for the first time were some questions to ascertain some feelings and views of the rural sector on a range of issues including land aggregation, retirement, research data sources, forestry and taxation.
