Measures at farm level to reduce GHG emissions from EU agriculture

  • 65 pages
  • Language : English
  • 2014
  • The AgriClimateChange program partners grouped 10 significant actions to fight against climate change at the farm scale into 3 main categories: agronomic measures, livestock follow-up measures, or measures concerning energy sobriety and the development of renewable energies. Each measure is described in its energy and climate interest and indicates the farming systems concerned, the implementation costs, the associated environmental co-benefits, the implementation possibilities for the CAP 2014-2020 and finally the technical feasibility for farmers.

Climate-friendly agriculture

  • 52 pages
  • Language : English
  • 2013
  • This document regroups all the results for energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) in a network of 120 farms in Germany, Italy, Spain and France, that were followed during 3 years by the partners of the AgriClimateChange program. The manual presents in a progressive way: the general principles of the ACCT evaluation tool, the energy-GES results per production system, the main measures to reduce energy and GHG on the farms. Finally 9 specific case studies are detailed, corresponding to contrasting production systems.

Methodology guidelines for the carbon calculator

  • 145 pages
  • Language : English
  • 2013
  • This document details the perimeter selected for the evaluation of farm greenhouse gas, the types of greenhouse gases taken into account and the different direct and indirect estimated emission sources. The calculation methods (formula) are detailed for each greenhouse gas emission source, carbon stock variation, as well as the allocation rules of the impact of greenhouse gas between the various agricultural products of the farm. In the same way, the emission factors of each data item of the tool are grouped in a recapitulative table that provides the bibliographical references.
