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.
"It was good to be able to scrutinise the data behind their analysis," says Vera Power, Chief Executive of the Fertiliser Association of New Zealand.
"Our submission focuses on the policies to support emissions reductions from the agricultural sector as this is the area where we consider we can make the most contribution."
"We agree that the budgets proposed are ambitious, but with commitment from all sectors is achievable."
"We were also pleased to see that their recommendations include what we see as a pressing point - the lack of regulatory pathways for new agricultural emissions reduction technologies, which is a barrier to investment in innovation.
"The Government urgently needs to progress regulations to enable use of approved, effective mitigation products. This will remove a barrier to reducing agricultural emissions."
