Carbon farming in Australia is constantly changing. Generally, it refers to a deliberate set of agricultural practices or land uses to increase carbon stored in the soil and vegetation (sequestration), and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from livestock, soil or vegetation (avoidance).
Carbon farming can range from a single change in land management – such as introducing no-till cultivation, cover crops or changing grazing management – to a whole-of-farm integrated plan which maximises carbon capture and reduces emissions.
RMCG has extensive experience in working with farmers and other key stakeholders to understand the feasibility of carbon sequestration activities on their farm and how they can participate in carbon markets. This is achieved through activities such as on-farm trials, workshops and resources such as fact sheets, case studies and industry articles.
A list of current and previous project examples are outlined below.
