Agreed. That is why I consider CSA subtropical, bc it is subtropical with a dry summer and wet winter.

our primary industry is Agriculture and Horticulture.
No, it isn’t, and even your agriculture is not attuned to warm climate product

Lack of Winter and year-round rainfall here means that quite a few introduced plant species have become a major pest problem
Yeah, from temperate zones

Plants will only do well in climates which meet their requirements.

No agriculture in NZ is specifically attuned to cold climates - even grazing mostly operates on year round grass growth.

Invasive plants in NZ can be from warmer or colder climates.

Geographic rather than climatic - if comparing to US States of a similar size and latitude, it has greater biodiversity than most.

NZ exports Hass Avocados (a warm climate product) and there are others like Tamarillo
Agriculture is our biggest export earner. There is year-round grass growth here.

Spartium junceum (Spanish Broom) is an example of a introduced plant that has become an invasive pest species.

NZ’s climate it’s still oceanic, oceanic climates in some places can have warm climates characteristics because they are mild. That’s pretty interesting.

Yes, NZ climate is oceanic with sub-tropical influence in the north, the sub tropical influence is reflected in the native vegetation, an example https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agathis
Westerly pattern generally drops away from northern NZ in Summer with a lot of humid air flow of tropical origin.
Kaitaia latitude is 35 south.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaitaia

Norfolk Island north of New Zealand has a true subtropical climate. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norfolk_Island

And infact Norfolk Island is basically bordering tropical, so the north island oceanic is a tropical leaning oceanic climate, like I like to call it “pre-tropical oceanic”, just like I call Northern Florida pre-tropical humid subtropical with the pre-tropical.
