The aim of carbon farming is to sequester more carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as part of Australia's response to climate change.
Nitrous oxide, a highly active greenhouse gas, is released from pastures and crops using nitrogen fertilisers.
Techniques to reduce livestock greenhouse gas emissions may also increase livestock productivity and resilience.
Managing manure to reduce emissions can be economically viable for larger enterprises or cooperative facilities that use the captured methane to generate heat and electricity.
Seed potato schemes do not have a standardised system for naming their field grown generations which makes it difficult to compare schemes.
Durif grapevines were evaluated for fruit and wine production in Manjimup from 2007 to 2010. Ripening conditions were challenging with bunches displaying diseases.
Determining how water moves through soil and is used by plants following irrigation is difficult.
Gibberellic acid (GA) is used in citrus orchards to manipulate flowering and fruit development and reduce the incidence and/or severity of some physiological disorders that occur due to environment
Scheduling irrigation for tomatoes based on crop factors and evaporation, combined with soil moisture monitoring to confirm irrigation effectiveness, will result in more efficient watering.
