Avocado-growing regions in Northland, Bay of Plenty, Gisborne and Hawke’s Bay

Climate change will affect where NZ crops can be grown in the future

The New Zealand Institute for Plant and Food Research has released a series of fact sheets about climate change impacts on the spatial footprint of horticultural crops.

This research was completed under the Ministry for Primary Industries Sustainable Land Management and Climate Change (SLMACC) project 40542. It focuses on avocado cultivation in New Zealand. Climate data was simulated as model inputs to forecast how suitability
will change in the future, for two Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs) which are scenarios for greenhouse gas (GHG)
concentrations in the atmosphere.

Climate data were made available by the National Institute for Water and Atmospheric Research Limited (NIWA). Soil and slope data were reproduced with the permission of Manaaki Whenua — Landcare Research.
