This Livestock and Pasture study is part of the wider UKRI STFC-funded EO4Agroclimate programme.
The agri-tech sector is vibrant and growing, with many exciting companies, organisations and networks are working to develop agri-tech solutions.
Our Vision: A sustainable and resilient agrifood sector, powered by data Our Mission: To transform the agrifood sector through a thriving Data Marketplace, where data can be easily shared, monetised, and accessed
Dairy production is a critical component of the agriculture industry focused on the sustainable production of milk and milk-derived products.
The livestock industry is an integral part of the agricultural sector, encompassing various aspects of animal husbandry and production. It plays an important role in global food security and supports the livelihoods of millions of people worldwide.
We create diverse connections to drive positive change.
N2 Applied has developed a technology that enables local production of fertiliser using only livestock slurry, air and electricity, – dramatically reducing harmful emissions and improving yield at the same time. The technology adds nitrogen from the air into slurry, which increases the nitrogen content. The reaction prevents the loss of ammonia and eliminates methane emissions, making it a real solution helping to achieve climate target commitments on an industrial scale.
Pioneering innovation, technology and precision engineering for UK farming.
We are CHAP, one of four UK Agri-Tech Innovation Centres. We bring together scientists, farmers, advisors and pioneers to advance crop productivity and yield around the world.
GrassCheckGB is a grass monitoring project involving 50 dairy, beef and sheep farms. Growth and quality data is published weekly throughout the growing season
Guide from CIEL on GHG emissions from livestock farming and how to reduce them.
Sheep were one of the first farmed animals, reared for thousands of years for meat and milk.
This report aims to explore N cycling in livestock production systems, highlighting the roles of different forms of N, particularly its vital role in protein production, and where losses occur from the cycle.
The dairy sector is often in the firing line when it comes to the criticism cows receive for their contribution to greenhouse gas emissions. This is despite total emissions from UK dairy production falling by 16.1% between 1990 and 2020.
The livestock industry is often scrutinised for its carbon footprint even though many farmers are actively working to reduce emissions and farm in the most sustainable manner. Despite this, more can always be done. CIEL’s Net Zero & Livestock: How Farmers can reduce emissions report launched in 2022 provides sheep farmers with practical tips to help reduce emissions on-farm, which we list in the blog below:
Soil is the basis of every grassland system and aiming to constantly improve soil health will pay dividends in grassland productivity.
New report highlights the role reducing key endemic diseases in ruminants can play in contributing to the Global Methane Pledge formed at COP26 to reduce methane emissions by 30% by 2030.
The relationship between wetlands and livestock farming is complex and a subject of growing importance in the face of climate change and biodiversity loss.
