New water quality tool

From Nine To Noon, 9:41 am on 9 October 2017

Geography programme director at Victoria University of Wellington, Bethanna Jackson, tells Kathryn Ryan about her Land Utilisation and Capability Indicator tool (LUCI) which is designed to manage nutrient loss into waterways. Dr Jackson started developing this tool in Wales, where she's been working since 2006 on flood prevention. Here in New Zealand she has developed the software to help farmers identify at-risk areas for nutrient loss.
