Future work in rural Southland
Southland is a rich farming area. It has a reliable climate, fertile soils and a variety of topography. Its cool winters help to keep pests and diseases at bay. While New Zealand itself is renowned as a very favoured farming country, Southland produces well above national average yields in all its established products. Therefore it can be expected that our economy will continue to be overwhelmingly reliant on our established pastoral and cropping industries. This report is focused mainly on opportunities to increase variety and quality of life in rural Southland.
