This project is for a programme of fieldwork to collect pasture quality samples to inform New Zealand’s agriculture greenhouse gas inventory.
National estimates of pasture quality (metabolisable energy and nitrogen) underpin the methane and nitrous oxide estimates that make up the vast majority of New Zealand’s agricultural emissions. However, some farm types and regions are not well represented in this data set. This project is for a programme of fieldwork to collect pasture quality data to improve this data set, targeting areas and farm types identified as undersampled in a current project, 405378 A framework for national pasture quality data.
The successful contractor will develop and undertake a programme of pasture sampling across the country. The programme will be developed in accordance with the national framework developed from the previous project.
MPI does not need:
• analysis of existing pasture quality data
• estimates of New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions – this is a well-established, separate process
