Taking a look at the big picture

What are the relationships between soil quality and land value, land pressure on catchments, and water quality?

Typically, soil quality monitoring has been used to measure how intensive land use impacts soil and water quality at a local level. However, for the first time in Aotearoa New Zealand, researchers were able to tap into soil quality monitoring data from 12 regional councils, property valuation data from district valuation rolls, and water quality data from nearly 800 sites to understand the bigger picture across large catchment areas.

This tool was developed in collaboration between Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research and AgResearch.
