Farm of the Future has been produced by Innovation for Agriculture on behalf of the Royal Agricultural Society of England, with funding from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. It is intended as a useful starting point laying out the options available for decarbonising farm businesses. Agriculture is the only industry able to sequester the carbon it emits, plus emissions from other industries too. This puts farmers in a unique position, as decisions on how land is farmed can have a hugely positive impact on the environment, but the actions taken on farms must also make sense from a business perspective. This new guide summarises practical actions farm businesses can take to reduce emissions and sequester carbon. The actions are grouped into three sections: actions that can be taken immediately, those that require some planning and long-term options to consider.
