Erosion

Taking action to reduce erosion will prevent sediment and nutrients from entering waterways and protect valuable topsoil.

Waterway erosion

Preventing stream bank erosion protects productive farm land from being lost and decreases the amount of soil and phosphorous entering waterways.

A guide to erosion control for water quality improvement

New Zealand has a significant erosion challenge with more than 200 million tonnes of soil lost from the land to the sea each year. Some of this is natural but the majority is the result of land development like native vegetation clearance and grazing animals, as well as changes to waterway flows from drainage and river straightening.

EnviroWalk

The EnviroWalk app is an easy to use tool that helps farmers quickly assess environmental risks across the farm. When areas for improvement are identified, the app lists actions that can be selected to form a customised action plan. Plans are saved and can be downloaded, printed and updated at any time.

Water, soils and wallowing

Deer have specific natural needs and behaviours and if incorrectly managed, deer can threaten the quality of water and soil, cause erosion, compaction and pugging of soils, and the consequent runoff of nutrient, sediment and coliforms will result in contamination of waterways with undesirable behaviour including excessive pacing, wallowing, and digging in soils.
