Working with farmers to find practical ways to move towards a more profitable, low carbon future, adapt to a changing climate and secure farm viability for future generations. This program is delivered as part of Scotland’s Farm Advisory Service (FAS).
Farms are in a good position to lower their carbon footprint and lock carbon into the soil and vegetation. This process is known as creating ‘carbon sinks’ or sometimes referred to as ‘carbon sequestration’.
With the help of SRUC Specialists, industry professionals and the farmer discussion group, we investigate, test and share practical measures to improve farm profitability and reduce the farm carbon footprint.
