    Paper presented by Bill Kaye-Blake at the 2012 Conference of the New Zealand Association of Economists Palmerston North, 27 June 2012.

    This paper reports the results of an economic assessment of the pipfruit research programme Apple Futures. Apple Futures was a research and technology transfer project focused on meeting market requirements in the European Union, primarily the United Kingdom and Germany. Apple Futures investigated the residue profile of different chemical under different conditions, and developed a plan to produce fruit below the maximum residue level (MRL). The programme also included technology transfer, including wallcharts, seminars, internet material, and more.

    Consumers, supermarkets and distributors in Germany and the United Kingdom have been demanding reduced chemical use on fruit. The innovative growing programme ‘Apple Futures’ brought scientists and growers together to figure out how to reduce sprays and residues while producing export-quality fruit. Analysis from NZIER found that the research programme preserved between $25m and $35m per year of industry net income from 2008 to 2011, at a research cost of $3.2m. In just four years, the apple industry earned up to an extra $113m by reducing chemical residues to one-tenth of the maximum set by the European Union.

    Breaking an addiction is difficult: only about 3% of smokers who go cold turkey manage to successfully quit. New research by behavioural economists shows that getting people to make a financial bet on their success could lift those rates by over half again. Economists at NZIER think it's an option that should be considered as the government aims to achieve a smoke-free nation by 2025.
