Recognising and understanding the impact that different farming practices have on greenhouse gas emissions is an important aspect of tackling the ambitious emissions reduction target that has been set for the UK agricultural industry.

The Farm Carbon Assessment Tool takes an alternative approach to assessing a farm’s carbon footprint. Instead of focusing on figures and tonnes of emissions it allows you to look at the aspects of your farm which contribute to your farm’s carbon footprint and scores key farm practices in relation to their impact on greenhouse gas emissions – highlighting areas for improvement, providing targeted, technical support and enabling you to monitor your progress towards best practice in relation to low carbon farming and lowering the emissions impact of your farm.
