A man has died after his tractor rolled on a farm in Northland.

Contract milker Frank Oud, who was 50, was driving the tractor and towing an effluent tanker on a hillside when the tractor flipped over about 10am on Thursday in Tangiteroria.

Police say he was found underneath the tractor by the farm owner and died a short while later.

They say the death has been referred to the Coroner.
