Exports of vegetables, flowers, seeds and bulbs, 1965–2005

This graph shows the value of exports of vegetables, cut flowers, seeds and bulbs between 1965 and 2005. Dollar values have been adjusted for inflation to 2005 levels. These exports form a significant and increasing component of New Zealand's horticultural trade. Although there has been a small export trade in vegetables from New Zealand since the 1800s, modern export markets have only been developed since the mid-1980s.
