Global markets are driving change in agriculture due to increasing focus on the carbon footprint of agricultural products. A Farm Carbon Management Plan is a first step for NSW farmers – it is a comprehensive guide that estimates a farmers’ current carbon footprint and suggests potential pathways to decrease or avoid emissions and/or increase carbon sequestration. Each Farm Carbon Management Plan is specific to the individual business, taking into consideration the enterprise, infrastructure, land, soil types and remnant vegetation. This plan is designed to support on farm decision making when considering carbon farming on your property.
The On Farm Carbon Advice Project is a joint initiative between NSW Department of Primary Industries and the Office of Energy & Climate Change funded by Primary Industries Productivity and Abatement Program (PIPAP)
