Farming Carbon Seminars - Nambucca Heads
North Coast Regional Landcare is organising Farming Carbon Seminars on 20 and 21 June 2012.
Session 1: Mick Keogh will share with us his understanding of greenhouse gas emissions and the Carbon Farming Initiative. ‘Mick is well placed to interpret government policy and legislation for farmers. This is an op-portunity for farmers to learn the facts from an expert in a non-political setting.’
Session 2: Mick will talk about farm management practices we can implement to reduce our carbon footprint and put money in our pockets in the process. Mick has worked with farmers and researchers to develop and trial farm management practices that are both profitable and carbon efficient.
Session 3: The Australian Farm Institute recently launched the FarmGAS Scenario Tool that allows registered users the opportunity to investigate the effect of different options to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the po-tential to generate carbon credits and offers flexibility to tailor calculations to individual situations. FarmGAS allows greenhouse gas emissions to be estimated at the farm enterprise and whole farm scale.
