If you carry out the activity of growing fresh tomatoes, fresh cucumbers, fresh capsicums or cut roses for commercial purposes then you are eligible for allocation. A fresh tomato, cucumber or capsicum is one that is not grown for processing (examples of processing include artificial drying, canning, evaporating, freezing or preserving) – so if you grow produce for processing then you will not be eligible in respect of that produce.
The number of NZUs each eligible grower will receive is determined by their annual production volumes. The table below gives an indication of how many units growers can expect based on annual production.
|Eligible Activity||Annual Production||New Zealand Units|
|Fresh Tomatoes||per 100 tonnes / annum||73|
|Fresh Capsicums||per 100 tonnes / annum||106|
|Fresh Cucumbers||per 100 tonnes / annum||99|
|Cut Roses||per 100,000 cut stems||42|
