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.
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 each pastoral region of Western Australia in different ways.
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
Climate projections for northern Australian Rangelands, including the Pilbara, are that temperatures will continue to rise; the intensity of heavy rainfall events will increase; and natural variabi
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
Techniques to reduce livestock greenhouse gas emissions may also increase livestock productivity and resilience.
