Growers are invited to learn more about measuring, understanding and acting on greenhouse gas emissions at an open day in Oxfordshire.

Organised by the Farm Carbon Toolkit, the event is taking place at the Hendred Estate in Wantage on 21 September.

The agenda includes workshops, panel sessions, and sharing applied research and trial data, as well as revealing the winner of the new Carbon Farmer of the Year competition.

Celebrating change

Chief executive officer, Liz Bowles, says the day should prove a great opportunity to celebrate the ways farmers are changing their practices to respond to the urgent goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing carbon sequestration.

“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,” she says.

Liz explains that technical sessions will cover crop cultivation and diversity, grazing best practice, livestock feed self-sufficiency, becoming fossil fuel free, and alternatives to conventional fertilisers.

Expert panel

An expert panel will debate the benefits of emerging private markets for carbon, Biodiversity Net Gain, nutrient neutrality and Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria. Attendees can also engage with an informal Carbon Calculator Clinic.
