What will the farm of the future look like? With a wide variety of UK farm businesses, there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach, but there are already many ‘tools in the toolbox’ to decarbonise the UK’s food supply chain and help meet net zero targets.
Based on RASE’s ‘Farm of the Future’ report, this guide highlights some of the tools available to farm businesses. It shows how farmers can be part of the transition to a more circular economy, improve soil management, deploy solutions to sequester carbon, protect rural resources, and adopt on-farm renewable energy.
The actions outlined in this guide are grouped into three sections: action that can be taken immediately, actions that require some planning and long-term options to consider. All farmers can contribute towards meeting net zero in UK agriculture.
Each of the actions featured has a short description followed by a QR code and page number to access the relevant section in the main Farm of the Future report or associated technical papers.
