- Farm Carbon Toolkit is inviting farmers, growers, and landowners to its Annual Field day on Thursday 21st September in Oxfordshire for a day of workshops, panel sessions, applied research, trials data, and more
The Farm Carbon Toolkit Annual Field Day is an opportunity for farmers to share their experiences of improving the performance and resilience of their businesses in a challenging environment, to hear about recent developments at the Farm Carbon Toolkit and the latest applied research, and to find out this year’s winner of the new Carbon Farmer of the Year competition.
Liz Bowles, Chief Executive Officer at Farm Carbon Toolkit, says:
“The Farm Carbon Toolkit Annual Field Day is a great opportunity to showcase and celebrate the many ways that farmers and growers are already changing their practices to respond to the urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase carbon sequestration, as well improve the resilience of their businesses as they transition to a nature friendly decarbonisation of agriculture.
“With numerous workshops and presentations on the latest applied research and best practice, as well as trial results and exhibitors, we welcome everyone to join us for this information and informal day, kindly hosted by Julian Gold at the Hendred Estate in Oxfordshire.”
Technical sessions this year will cover grazing best practice, crop cultivation and diversity, livestock feed self-sufficiency, becoming fossil fuel free, and alternatives to fossil fuel-based fertilisers.
An expert panel will debate the benefits to farm businesses of the emerging private markets for carbon, Biodiversity Net Gain, nutrient neutrality and Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria.
There will also be an informal Carbon Calculator Clinic at lunchtime for anyone who has questions or is interested in using our popular Farm Carbon Calculator for their business.
