  • Social Objective Synthesis Report 2: Social Differentiation and Choice of Management System among ARGOS Farmers/Orchardists

    Rosin, Chris; Hunt, Lesley; Fairweather, John; Campbell, Hugh (2009)

    Report
    University of Otago

    The ARGOS (Agriculture Research Group on Sustainability) project was designed to enable the interrogation of the condition of sustainability in the New Zealand agriculture sector. To account for the country’s reliance on a neoliberal (or market driven) policy orientation, the research programme compares groups of producers organised into panels whose members comply with similar audit schemes that regulate entrance into high value export markets. Because these audit schemes often include criteria or standards associated with improved environmental or social practice, comparison of the panels on the basis of economic, environmental and social measures and indicators provides insight to the potential for such schemes to promote a more sustainable agriculture sector in New Zealand. To the extent that such schemes do influence practice, we would expect to differentiate among the panels in reference to such criteria. As part of the overall ARGOS analysis, this report provides a synthesis of the social research conducted within the project and contributes to the examination of the ARGOS null hypothesis, namely that there is no significant difference in the economic, environmental and social dimensions and characteristics of the participating farms and orchards. The report’s main objectives are to assess both the extent to which it is possible to differentiate among the management system panels of ARGOS farms/orchards and how such difference is manifest in the social dimensions of farm life. To the extent that this analysis provides evidence to reject the null hypothesis, it is possible to inform understandings of agricultural sustainability as well as provide insight to the potential pathways to improving this condition.

  • Kiwifruit casual mapping in 2008 : comparisons to 2005 and to other sectors

    Fairweather, John; Hunt, Lesley; Rosin, Chris; Benge, Jayson; Campbell, Hugh (2009)

    Report
    University of Otago

    The Agriculture Research Group On Sustainability (ARGOS) is investigating the social, environmental and economic consequences of different management systems in different farming sectors in New Zealand (for more information visit www.argos.org.nz). The sectors being studied include kiwifruit, sheep/beef and dairy, and the systems being studied include conventional, integrated and organic management. Twelve farms under each system are being studied. In addition, there are eight high country farms included in the study. As part of the ARGOS social objective, causal mapping was used to document how the participating kiwifruit orchardists described and explained the factors involved in their orchard systems, broadly defined to include economic, social and environmental factors. Participants identified which factors among those provided were important to the management and performance of their orchards and were asked to link these on a map. This method was first used in 2005 and then repeated with some modifications in 2008 in order to examine possible changes in orchardist’s mapping over time. In the latter three studies the method was applied in a slightly different way compared to the first kiwifruit study. In this report the revised method was applied to kiwifruit orchardists in 2008 so that a set of results using the same method is available for all the sectors studied.

  • New Zealand Farmer Attitude and Opinion Survey 2008: Management systems and farming sustainability

    Fairweather, John; Hunt, Lesley; Rosin, Chris; Moller, Henrik; Norton, Solis (2009)

    Report
    University of Otago

    The survey results presented in this report are part of ongoing research on New Zealand farmers and how they respond to changes and issues related to the sustainability of primary production. The survey assessed how farmers perceived three management systems (conventional, modified conventional or integrated management, and organic). Questions covered the precise identification of the management system the farmers used, their intentions to use different management systems, what they perceived as the outcomes from the use of each management system and the perceived barriers to using an alternative system. An additional objective was to assess how farmers were thinking about a range of issues important to the sustainability of agriculture, including farm plans, emissions trading, and water and irrigation. A questionnaire was posted to a random sample of full-time and part-time farmers. The response rate was only 16%, possibly due to the timing of the survey and the difficulty of the questions. Most of the questions used a seven point rating scale and the mean score and score distributions were examined. The data were analysed descriptively, supplemented with some statistical tests and detailed analyses.
