Kiwifruit Orchard Monitoring Programme

The Kiwifruit Orchard Monitoring Programme (the Programme) is part of the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) Farm Monitoring Programme. Data collection for the Programme was last funded by MPI in 2012, with outputs including a published kiwifruit orchard model for the Bay of Plenty region and an associated commentary report.

The Programme aims to track and analyse the production and financial performance of kiwifruit orchards over time to better understand trends and issues, as well as informing government and sector-led policy and other initiatives aimed at growing the sector. Environmental data collection will be piloted and phased in over two to three years, with annual data collection, thereafter, guided by work led by Zespri on environmental performance and reporting for kiwifruit orchards, and a research review currently underway by MPI.

MPI wishes to select a supplier who can undertake annual data collection, and provide analysis, interpretation and commentary on the data collected from kiwifruit orchards in the Bay of Plenty region. The supplier will be responsible for recruiting the participating orchards. The successful supplier will collect production, financial and environmental data from 50 participating orchards each year and provide the anonymised data and commentary to MPI, and assist with the development and validation of the Bay of Plenty regional kiwifruit orchard model.
