B+LNZ Land Environment Planning Workshop Level 2: Luggate

Manage the environmental and water issues that make your farm unique.

This LEP level 2 workshop is a combined event with an Action Network group. Please register directly with the facilitator Nicola McGrouther at nicola@creeksideconsulting.co.nz

About the workshop

A Land and Environment Plan (LEP) is a tool that guides farmers through a recorded assessment of a farm’s land and environmental issues, and helps farmers to develop a written plan outlining how those issues will be managed. It involves a stock-take of land, soil and water resources, an assessment of production opportunities and environmental risks, and development of a plan showing what actions are going to be undertaken, where they are being targeted, and when they will be implemented.

Building on the level 1 workshop (you can still attend if you don’t have level 1), the level 2 Land Environment Plan's aim is to identify Land Management Units (LMUs), which are used as a basis for nutrient budgeting, assessing strengths and weaknesses, and estimating farm yield gap.

Opportunities are considered against SMART criteria to develop a response plan.

Lunch provided. 

What to bring

To complete this Level 2 LEP workshop you will need:

  • A recent nutrient budget (if you don’t have one check with your fertiliser company for help; you can still attend if you don’t have one in time for the workshop).
  • Any previous Land Environment Plans.
  • Any other information you may have that will help set up your LEP.
