The snow has also seriously disrupted vegetable production and supply. Shortages in shops and higher prices are expected.

The Pukekohe Vegetable Growers Association says the disruption is widespread.

President Simon Watson says it will affect all seasonable vegetable supplies.

Heavy rainfall, strong winds and hail storms also damaged vegetable production last month.
