NZLRI Land Use Capability 2021

Land Use Capability (LUC) 2021 is a specific subset of the NZLRI. The LUC rates the ability of each land region to sustain long-term agricultural production, based on an assessment of the NZLRI inventory factors, climate, the effects of past land use, and the potential for erosion. Capability is used in the sense of suitability for productive use or uses after considering the physical limitations of the land. The 2021 version of the LUC comprises a revised layer which now includes nationally consistent LUC unit descriptions.
