The aim of carbon farming is to sequester more carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as part of Australia's response to climate change.
Carbon farming activities can achieve multiple economic and environmental co-benefits in addition to, in some cases, emissions avoidance offset income.
Reforestation, afforestation and revegetation can sequester significant amounts of carbon per hectare.
Rangeland regeneration has the potential to sequester large amounts of carbon because of the large areas involved. Pastoral regeneration would also have extensive environmental benefits.
Nitrous oxide, a highly active greenhouse gas, is released from pastures and crops using nitrogen fertilisers.
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.
Strategic savanna fire management can be used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, protect fodder and infrastructure, and potentially attract payment for stewardship activity.
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.
