AS PART OF ANZ’S COMMITMENT TO NEW ZEALAND FARMING, WE OFFER SPECIALISED RESEARCH AND INSIGHTS ON THE KEY ISSUES AFFECTING THE FARMING SECTOR

We have specialists in rural economics who provide in-depth analysis of rural markets and commodities. They are supported by our wider economics team who provide comment and analysis of the wider economic environment, and the potential impact of economic trends and issues on your farming business.

Investing in the Environment

Farmers are pre-empting signalled changes to environmental regulations by investing in environmental initiatives now, an ANZ survey reveals.

Of those surveyed, 94% said they were aware of proposed changes to environmental compliance, and 93% had started investing in improved environmental practices, or had a detailed farm environment plan. Almost half were using technology to help them measure and monitor their environmental footprint.

We are keen to highlight the positive work being done by people like Waikato dairy farmers John Hayward and Susan O’Regan.
