FarmPrint: a monitoring and benchmarking tool to help farmers reduce their emissions
Work is underway to help Australian farmers better understand their emissions via a new monitoring and benchmarking tool to help them make their farms more sustainable.
Soils ain’t soils – carbon farming offers fertile future
Increasing the amount of carbon stored in agricultural soils can help mitigate rising greenhouse gas emissions and sustain agricultural productivity. Carbon farming is a key plank of Australia’s climate mitigation efforts, and CSIRO scientists are looking for new and innovative approaches to help realise the benefits for all.
Recovery of Australia’s soils following bushfires
While attention to bushfire recovery often centres on above ground developments – rebuilt buildings and a return of green tree canopies – it's what happens below the surface that often determines how successful recovery actually is.
How do you measure the environmental footprint of grazing cattle?
Meat consumption has been on the increase with improved standards of living and growing populations around the world. But how do you quantify the environmental cost of feeding the stock feeding that increase?
Savanna carbon emissions improved by dead reckoning
Managing savannas by burning has been good for limiting greenhouse gas emissions. Research now shows they're storing more carbon than previously thought.
Finding win-wins: carbon offset schemes and Indigenous co-benefits
With careful and thoughtful engagement, carbon offset schemes can be designed to ensure they deliver both carbon mitigation benefits and associated benefits for Indigenous peoples.
Farming carbon can be a win for wildlife, if the price is right
Climate change and the loss of biodiversity are two of the greatest environmental issues of our time. Is it possible to address both of those problems at once?
