Farmer decision-making in the Southland region

If you a farmer, grower or forester in the Southland region, then we'd like to hear from you!

You are invited to take part in a survey about decision making on farms and forestry blocks in Southland.

The survey contributes to our research into helping farmers, growers and foresters gain a greater sense of control over the decisions they make in implementing voluntary environmentally sustainable farming practices.

Take the survey

To participate

  • Your responses must be in relation to a farm or forestry block (that is not part of a farm) located in the Southland region
  • You must be partially or fully responsible for the day-to-day operations of the farm/forestry block or be the landowner responsible for capital costs
  • The survey can only be taken once per farm/forestry block.

How long does it take?

  • Initial survey: 20-30 minutes
  • Follow-up in 15 months: 20-30 minutes

In between these two surveys, you may be invited to participate in some entirely optional activities.

By way of thanks

To show our appreciation for your time, a $50 voucher from Woolworths will be sent to you upon the completion of this survey.

You also have a chance to receive up to $500 in additional vouchers in the first survey depending on your responses to a simulated farm-production task.

It is important that we can survey you a second time in about 15 months. After completing the follow-up survey we will send you a $150 voucher from Woolworths to express our gratitude.
