Carbon and Agriculture: Is it possible to make your farm carbon neutral?
Thursday 17 February 2022
Bow Hill Sports Centre
In 2019, Australian farms emitted around 76 million tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent emissions. As the effects of climate change become evident and the reality of border taxes become more likely, the pressure is on to manage carbon at a farm level.
Join us for a half day forum at Bow Hill Sports Centre to find out what carbon neutrality in agriculture looks like and how to apply it to local farming systems.
Hear about the opportunities and limitations of carbon farming from expert speakers with topics including sequestration, practice change and carbon sequestration.
Topics and speakers include
Dr Mark Farrell (CSIRO) What does the future look like
with carbon farming and what science can be applied to farming
Dr Gupta Vadakattu (CSIRO) Microbial management and
regenerative agriculture in soil
Amanda Schapel (PIRSA) Carbon in your farming business, and
how to accumulate carbon in your soils
Eliza Rieger (Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board) What is regenerative agriculture?
Scott Hutchens (Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board) Preventing pests and prickles in your patch
Hannah Spronk - (Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board) Priority weeds in the Mallee
