Carbon footprint tool helps farmers reduce their greenhouse gas emissions

A carbon footprint tool, which aims to help farmers reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, has been updated to include a soil sequestration module, according to a report by Tillage & Soils.

Agrecalc was developed by SAC Consulting – part of Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC), in response to the growing need for a simple-to-use, accurate and science-driven carbon audit tool. The mission of the tool is to assess what is technically feasible to get a farm, or supply chain, to lower carbon emissions, with a goal of net zero where viable.

It is used by more than 2,500 businesses and institutions, including the Scottish Government, retailers, corporate farming businesses and financial institutions.

Julian Bell, a Principal Consultant at SAC Consulting, said: “We have a model farm that allows us to examine how management practices contribute to carbon reduction, and importantly this now considers the role of soils and their management.
