high-class land is the most productive land for growing food. It supports most crops across New Zealand. Expanding lifestyle blocks and urban areas reduces the availability of high-class land for commercial crop growing, and this land is unlikely to be returned to primary production. This affects our commercial food-production capacity.
area_kha = area of land measured in kilohectares (ie multiply by 1000 to get hectares)
This dataset relates to the "High-class land for food production" measure on the Environmental Indicators, Te taiao Aotearoa website.
