GHG calculator - Know Your Numbers

By 2022, every sheep and beef farmer should ‘know their numbers’ – that is, have calculated their Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and sequestration. Funded by the Red Meat Profit Partnership, the GHG Calculator is a tool for red meat farmers to measure and report on-farm GHG emissions and sequestration. It is simple, accurate and reflects the individual farm’s situation

AgMatters - Reduce methane emissions

Agriculture contributes just over 48% of New Zealand’s total greenhouse gas emissions. Methane belched out by ruminant animals is responsible for 71% of our total agricultural emissions. Reducing methane is essential if New Zealand is to meet its national and international targets.

AgMatters - Reduce nitrous oxide emissions

Nitrous oxide is a tiny component of the atmosphere but a potent and long-lived greenhouse gas. It accounts for 12% of New Zealand's total greenhouse gas emissions. Most nitrous oxide emissions arise from agriculture. The Government has set a target of reducing nitrous oxide emissions to net zero by 2050, meaning on-farm action is critical.
