Professional Development – Carbon Accounting – Friday 28th April

Managing carbon in agriculture is an urgent need to mitigate the impact of agriculture on climate change, adapt to the changing climate, and ensure a sustainable and resilient food system for the future. The West Australian Government is taking steps to address climate change by setting targets, implementing policies, and supporting innovation and research in key sectors such as energy and agriculture.

General and Associate members attended the April Professional Development Day at Tomkins on Swan on Friday 28th April. The members particularly valued the briefing on using carbon accounting calculators, and hearing from Louise Barton, UWA School of Agriculture and Environment, on sources of GHG emissions from N fertiliser application to WA dryland cropping soils. Carbon accounting is becoming an essential skill set for consultants in agriculture as sustainability and environmental responsibility become increasingly important in the sector. The example of GHG benchmarking and regenerative farming projects built a broad perspective of the challenge facing farmers and the consultants that support them.
