This section of The Carbon Cutting Toolkit is designed to enable any farmer in the UK to understand:
- The importance of taking action on your farm to reduce farm greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
- How different parts of a farming system produce GHGs.
- Which parts of the farm operation result in the most significant GHG emissions.
- Key actions you can take to make a start at reducing your farm GHG emissions – now.
The Toolkit is written by farmers, for farmers; it's not a definitive guide – we couldn't get everything on just a few pages, but it is a distillation of the essential items and it's designed to give you a good grasp of the issues and actions.
It will be updated continuously as we hear about new research giving an improved understanding of a process or a new farm technique that we become aware of. We hope it will give you all the tools you need to make sense of the subject and take some positive action in response. All comments and suggestions are gratefully received as this is an evolving process.
