Composting offers an environmentally superior alternative to using organic material for landfill because composting reduces methane production (a major source of greenhouse gas), and provides a ser
The Australian Government's 2020 inventory of the nation's sources and sinks of greenhouse gases shows agriculture was responsible for about 13.5% of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions in 2018.
Climate change will affect soil and water resources directly and indirectly, and the impacts will be determined by the three primary drivers: local climate, land characteristics and land management
The aim of carbon farming is to sequester more carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as part of Australia's response to climate change.
All agricultural industries in Western Australia will need to deal with some level of climate change in the coming decades. The effects of climate change will vary regionally and by enterprise, wit
Climate projections for Western Australia (WA) are that average annual temperature will increase by 1.1–2.7°C in a medium-emission scenario, and 2.6–5.1°C in a high-emission scenario by the end of
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.
Western Australia's climate has changed over the last century, particularly over the last 50 years. Average temperature has risen about 1°C.
