Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions at Farm Level
The Go to Guide for reducing farm GHG emissions, from Innovation for Agriculture. Funded by WWF and Tesco.
The guide has been arranged with easy-to-follow, step-by-step actions for farmers and land managers starting out on the journey of reducing their
Greenhouse Gas footprint. It also includes more aspirational measures for those who are well on their way to transforming their farming business.
The actions presented in this guide are the result of thorough review of the supporting science and subsequent ranking of a long list of measures shown to reduce agricultural GHG emissions. From here a final short list was presented and discussed with a broad, largely representative group of farmers at a farmer-led workshop in June 2021. This short list contains existing measures from the scientific literature with the greatest potential to reduce GHG emissions. The list of measures was then ranked for perceived benefit for cost to the relevant sectors and by the likelihood of implementation – was it feasible now and
how palatable is it to those on the ground? This guide is the outcome from this project.
