In order to encourage the continued reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture it is important to achieve clarity about the on-farm practices that can increase production efficiency and realise GHG emissions reductions per unit of production. The greenhouse gas emissions associated with agriculture are methane, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide.
A key part of achieving reductions is delivering this knowledge to farmers in a way that enables them to make business decisions that promote efficiency, competitiveness and emissions reductions. A crucial part of this is effective knowledge transfer and providing farm businesses with the skills, tools and knowledge to face these challenges.
This survey is designed to find out what is really happening on-farms in terms of understanding management and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and try to answer some key questions:
- What are farmers doing to safeguard resources, and where are the gaps in research, understanding and implementation
- Where should we focus effort and (limited) resources?
- How should we be supporting farmers to understand the issues better?
- What will really make a difference and change behaviour?
