a national government it was the previous labor government as well. stamps as far as the eye can see much of the canterbury region once looked like this but things have changed extensive irrigation systems provide the water necessary for luscious grass to grow pastures for more cows the water is taken from the rivers leaving them more vulnerable to environmental damage o'sullivan says there's nothing wrong with using the water for irrigation soon as it would head to the ocean it's worthless. might see as for the economic well being of the country. as it would have for for economic. he says where there is grass there is less ground erosion and that farmers now cultivate many river banks and use less fertilizer what's more modern technology allows for more precise targeting and less wasteful dosing of water in farming the harsh criticism he says is not justified.
2:37 pm
it's not constructive instead of. trying stars at us when i come and say yes and we can work together as a community to find out what the problem is and fix. it that's for. striking back at lake ellis mere two years ago the government announced it would invest sixty million euros in projects to improve freshwater quality like a drop in the ocean says martin taylor he sees just one answer to the crisis and it has economic consequences. mainly steer yes it does mean a nice theory it means lease chaos lifts milk and maybe families having to switch to something else but this to why it is and i've got to accept that just because some people are making money doesn't mean all the rest of us should have to put up with the poison mark. by twenty forty the government wants ninety percent of all new zealand waters to be clean enough to swim step one on their list lowering standards with instant results overnight waterways have become dramatically cleaner

song he's a farmer his family has been working the land for four generations. he's also raising six children on his own like his forefathers before him so he wants to live at one with nature now large scale cultivation on the chemicals organic farming which makes him something of an eccentric. well me i look at everyone here says i'm crazy but ultimately this isn't my land it's borrowed i'm just visiting that for fifty sixty or seventy years so it has to be here for a future generation of. you know look it up. for a long time other farmers markets for his dedication to small scale cultivation but things changed dramatically when it became clear that he was integrity and saving the oldest and rarest variety of cocoa bean in the world the nothing i. did in real life nationality this variety produces very little kircher liberal

problem is one phrase that generate a lot of cruachan. on the other low year in means a highly concentrated flavor if quality are the taste are exactly what we're looking looking as though there was camel's. back at all is home to perhaps the world's oldest coca trees and because many locals depend on cocoa for survival righties which produce a lot of fruit a very popular while engine varieties are rapidly disappearing. all were until jerry tough came along he moved to ecuador from the u.s. ten years ago. he spent many of them fighting deforestation when he heard that the rare nasional cocoa bean was facing extinction he went on a trail that's when he met. sevier told them about some particularly old trees in the remote planter valley he knew that from his forefathers although

illiterate they were very knowledgeable about local vegetation. well that was. my grandmother was not interested in a life in the kitchen she was very child like she loved working in the fields always had her machete with her she was very determined not to put up like a course. and indeed d.n.a. tests proved that a handful of the many thousands of trees were rare original varieties there's only one percent of such ferocity left in ecuador they produce very small amounts of high quality cow for decades local people consider them worthless but the fruit has become a luxury a street this is mindful chocolate consumption give people a reason to kind of stop what they're doing rather than just kind of popping chalk in their mouth and going on their way to really kind of take in what they're doing and sit down and properly taste it the way you taste

a special bottle of wine and so the world's most expensive cocoa is harvested right here assuming that is that the two farmers don't devour it all and sounds to me. well we all do good job of getting all of our chocolate. oh yeah. it's the first harvest of the season and serbia's neighbors are feeling festive too they and good money on the small amounts they harvest. they say they're paid twice as much as elsewhere there's real pride in a special product and service is no longer a crazy tree hugger he's a local hero. each box is clearly labeled for random quality testing there are regular checks to make sure these are really pure nasional cocoa beans. the local climate with the extreme weather heavy rain and warm temperatures plays a key role in the way the beans taste. it is

2:44 pm
and for my generation it's now time to protect him rediscover such things. but it doesn't come cheaply three hundred ten euro for fifty grams and the price won't fall until there are more nasional cocoa trees. that's one of the aims of the farmers here several want to go the same way as servia cultivating small amounts in a sustainable way. but it didn't as also and you know at first it was just a dream and then it works and that makes us very happy it feels like a real triumph. after this good first harvest the cocoa beans have to ferment which takes a combination of time and seven years' experience but for today at least it's time
