Heretaunga Soils Symposium

The highly productive land of the Heretaunga Plains and beyond, their value to growers, producers and the wider economy, and threats to fertile soils and water resources were all explored at a recent Soils Symposium held in Hastings.

Hastings District Council and Hawke’s Bay Regional Council partnered up to hold the event, aimed at building understanding of the nature and value of the soils, and which will help inform future planning and decision-making.
