Limitations of the data
All results from these collections are subject to non-sampling error, and sampling error.
As the Agricultural Production Census 2022 covered the year ending June 2022 it did not capture the damages caused by Cyclone Gabrielle, which devastated parts of the Hawkes Bay and Tairāwhiti region in early 2023. Agricultural statistics from previous years were used in the natural disaster recovery response planning.
Changes to data collection/processing
2021 questionnaire changes (from 2020) included following changes:
Horticulture – did not include questions on the area of fruit trees and vines planted, and the area of vegetables and other horticulture crops harvested.

Effluent management – did not include questions on effluent management systems.
Other farming practices – did not include questions on formal farm nutrient planning documents used by the farm.

About this dataset
The Agricultural Production Survey is part of an ongoing programme of agricultural production statistics conducted in partnership with the Ministry for Primary Industries. Previous sample surveys were held in 2003–06, 2008–11, and 2013–14, 2018–2021, with censuses in 2002, 2007, 2012, 2017, and 2022.
Agriculture Production Survey measures farming operations below the enterprise level.
Purpose of collection
To collect information about livestock farming (including sheep, beef and dairy cattle, and deer), crop growing (including grain and seed crops), fruit, vegetables, wine grapes, forestry and farm practices (including fertiliser use).
