The NFU has set the ambitious goal of reaching net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the whole of agriculture in England and Wales by 2040. At this online event we will hear from SoilEssentials, MIRICO and Agri-EPI about how to measure and manage greenhouse gasses in agriculture.
Who to attend
Whether you manage land, a farm, academic or technology developer on a collaborator in the agri-food supply chain this webinar is a must-attend to enable you to understand how agriculture can achieve net zero by 2040. Open to members and non-members of Agri-EPI.
Questions which will be explored by SoilEssentials’ Marcus Travers are: Why is there so much focus on farming and carbon from inside and outside the industry? What can farming take advantage of and how can it meet the needs of others? How can the farming industry understand the complexity of the carbon cycle at the farm level?

Mirico, Agricultural activities contribute directly to climate change, primarily through emissions of methane and ammonia arising from rearing livestock, spreading manure and growing rice. Unlike many other systems, whose measurements would be affected by inclement weather, MIRICO’s instruments provide an advanced measurement capability under a wider range of environmental conditions, enabling accurate and continuous measurements over agricultural facilities. www.mirico.co.uk
