Federated Farmers believes the final Climate Change Commission report will need to be backed up with significant investment in improving access to science and technology ON FARM, and the people needed to operate it. Back in February the Feds were relatively upbeat about the report and the challenges it posed for New Zealanders, and their government. But there were areas where Feds felt the analysis and the science was not reliable. National President Andrew Hoggard says to expect landowners to make land use changes based on the weight of regulation they face, rather than market forces, is unreliable and unlikely to deliver lasting improvements. He says farmers are feeling totally slammed.
