Innovation: introduce changes and new ideas
Increasing farm sustainability and resilience is key to securing a future for the next generations. Making changes, whether big or small, can often help to find ‘a better way of doing things’, improving both productivity and profitability. Sometimes the best innovations come from seeing how others work, taking their ideas and modifying to fit your system. The first step to help you decide where best to make changes can be a carbon audit. This can highlight areas within the farm enterprises where efficiencies can be made. We have practical guides and case studies across many agricultural sectors that can give you ideas of how other Scottish farmers are reducing their farm carbon emissions and improving sustainability.
