There is a growing emphasis on environmental sustainability within food and fibre systems, both in New Zealand and globally. This is reflected in government regulations, international trade agreements, market access, and consumer demands. Farmers are now facing requirements of reducing nitrogen and phosphorus losses into water and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, alongside other business and industry challenges. While some farms already achieve low greenhouse gas emissions while remaining profitable, the methods employed by these successful farmers have not been thoroughly investigated. This lack of investigation leaves many farmers without the necessary knowledge of how to improve their existing farming systems. This study aimed to address this deficiency by examining what successful farmers are already doing.
