Publication date:  December 2018
Publication reference number:  CR 327

Ministry for the Environment, in partnership with Bay of Plenty Regional Council, commissioned Perrin Ag Consultants Ltd and Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research to assess the farm/orchard-gate economic impact of applying a range of mitigation practices to reduce losses of nitrogen, phosphorus, E. coli and sediment.

The report also presents the effectiveness of these practices in reducing losses of nitrogen, phosphorus and agricultural greenhouse gas emissions across various land uses, as estimated in OVERSEER.
