AgInnovation 2021: Knowing your GHG numbers – Dr Ben Hancock, Beef + Lamb New Zealand

See the soon to be launched B+LNZ greenhouse gas (GHG) calculator in action and learn about how you can use it and why it’s important to ‘know your numbers’.

As part of New Zealand’s commitment to climate change and through the He Waka Eke Noa primary sector climate action partnership, all farmers are required to know their on-farm greenhouse gas emission numbers by the end of 2022.

B+LNZ has developed the GHG calculator as a free tool for farmers to measure and report on-farm greenhouse gas emissions and sequestration. It was developed and tested with farmers to be simple, accurate and useful, and reflect the individual farm’s livestock and production system.
