Farm monitoring

Find reports on the performance of different primary sectors, such as pipfruit, vineyards, and sheep and cattle farming.

What's in the reports

Our farm monitoring reports focus on individual primary industry sectors. Find a sector's:

  • typical revenue
  • expenses
  • seasonal production
  • emerging trends.

Pipfruit (apples and pears)

Production and financial information for model Hawke's Bay and Nelson pipfruit orchards.


Viticulture (wine grapes)

Get a financial summary for growing, harvesting, and marketing the crop in Marlborough, Gisborne, Hawke's Bay, Wairarapa, and Otago in our gross margin reports.

Vineyard benchmarking reports break down production and financial information in more detail for a model vineyard, and look at emerging issues for the industry. 


Apiculture (honey)

The Apiculture monitoring report has information about honey production, and industry developments such as the development of a definition for mānuka honey. We gather this information from surveys (completed by beekeepers, honey packers, and exporters), export documents, the Apiary database (a national register of beekeepers), and other reports.


Pastoral (sheep and cattle)

Performance reports for sheep and cattle from our industry partners.


Farm Monitoring Programme
