FARMANCO PROJECT LEAD
The project’s objective is to analyse, at a macro level (Rainfall Zone, State, Shire), as well as at an individual farm level, by enterprise, the carbon emissions produced by agriculture, in a single year as well as over time, in order to determine whether different farming systems produce higher or lower carbon emissions.
Develop simple to collect and analyse carbon emissions benchmarks, by geographical region (down to Shire level).
Identify those enterprises that contribute the most to carbon emissions and which are carbon neutral / absorbers.
Create farm level audits, against benchmarks, to identify concrete actions that growers can take in order to reduce their carbon footprint.
