Rural Delivery - Series Four, Episode Nine

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2008

In this 2008 episode of the long-running Rural Delivery, presenter Roger Bourne covers the major news affecting Aotearoa's primary industries, and digs deeper with some special features. Central Otago is a particular focus, with the show visiting Wānaka to learn about the region's apricot growing and deer farming. Although New Zealand's horticulture industry was enjoying growth when this episode was produced in 2008, it was a more tumultuous time for cattle and dairy farming, which is a frequent topic of conversation. Quad bike safety, the stock market, and Fonterra's pay-out rates are also discussed.  

Horticulture returns have now increased every year since 1980 and the industry predicts annual sales of over $10 billion by 2020.
