Reviews the effects of humping and hollowing, the resource consents issued by the Regional Council, and monitoring undertaken to date.
Farming practices on the West Coast are undergoing a noticeable change in scale and intensity. Earthmoving activities such as “humping and hollowing” and “flipping” are techniques used to improve land drainage and pasture production. These techniques are making development possible on lands where such development was once considered impracticable.
This review of humping and hollowing covers:
- What is known about the effects of humping and hollowing;
- A summary of the resource consents issued over the three years anding June 2004; and
- An assessment of monitoring requirements.
