Agriculture

The most common agricultural activities in Aotearoa are dairy, cropping, sheep, and beef farming.

Agricultural activities that significantly impact the environment usually require a resource consent. For example, a discharge permit for discharging farm waste to waterways, the use and application of chemical sprays, or a water permit for taking water and diverting it for irrigation, all require a resource consent.
