New Zealand’s largest census of agriculture and horticulture takes place in July providing important insights and data about agriculture. Stats NZ regularly surveys the agriculture sector in partnership with the Ministry for Primary Industries and next month’s census will collect the most up-to-date data from farmers, growers, and foresters.
