  • Determinants of farmland prices in a dynamic error correction form : a New Zealand case

    Dhungana, B. R.; Ward, B. D.; Nartea, G. V.

    Book
    Lincoln University

    This paper examines the effect of real net farm residual income, inflation, and the real interest rate on the movement of real farmland prices during 1970 to 1997 using a parsimonious error correction model. The empirical evidence suggests that the long run trend in the real land price can be explained by real net farm residual income to land and the real interest rate, with inflation having no statistically signifcant effect. However, the growth in the real interest rate explains about two thirds of the growth in land prices in the immediate to short-run.

  • A profile of tourism in the Lake Waikaremoana region: independent visitation in rural New Zealand

    Fitt, Helen; Horn, Chrys; Wilson, Jude

    Book
    Lincoln University

    This report provides the results of a survey of 191 visitors to Lake Waikaremoana, a remote area in Te Urewera National Park. Lake Waikaremoana has few established tourism services but significant tourist flows. Visitation is dominated by domestic tourists and the surrounding population is predominantly of Maori ethnicity. Lake Waikaremoana thus provided a case study that might be used to enhance understandings of the wider demand for tourism in isolated rural areas and to look at opportunities for the development of tourism and Maori tourism experiences in these areas.

  • Looking back at Te Tāpoitanga Māori: overview of a participatory research programme on rural Māori tourism development

    Horn, Chrys; Wilson, Jude; Fitt, Helen; Doherty, Joanna; Tahi, Brenda; Cranwell, Iaean

    Book
    Lincoln University

    The objectives of this research are: To understand tourist interest in Māori cultural tourism products, and To learn about working through the challenges that rural Māori have in developing tourism businesses. Demand for Māori ecotourism is relatively small within New Zealand tourism, and international visitors know surprisingly little about products that are not the standard kapahaka show. When they experience these more subtle forms of Māori tourism, however, they enjoy them. This implies three things. First, there is potential to grow the market for ecocultural tourism products. Second, New Zealand tourism marketing needs to reflect a greater diversity of Māori tourism products. Third, eco-cultural tourism businesses need to work carefully on locating their market and thinking about how best to sell to them in the current tourism climate.

    Book
    Lincoln University

The field work for this survey was carried out by Russell Moffitt with assistance from Marvin Pangborn and Patrick McCartin. Russell Moffitt completed the analysis and compiled the Report

  • An analysis of the retail demand for meat in the United Kingdom

    Philpott, B. P.; Matheson, Mary J.

    Book
    Lincoln University

    The value of New Zealand's meat exports is close to £100 million per annum. Any business organisation selling a product on such a scale would ensure that it possessed very full up-to-date details as to the main factors affecting the sales of its product. However, New Zealand meat is not sold through one large business organisation but through a variety of local and overseas firms and this variety of selling channels perhaps accounts for our state of almost complete ignorance as to the quantitative significance of the various factors affecting the consumption of our meat in the main markets to which we send it. The Research Unit's programme of market research aims to provide some of this information and the present bulletin is the result of the first stage in our programme of work in this field.
