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.
