How to make it easy to calculate greenhouse gas emissions for farms
Farmers are busy and calculating the greenhouse gas footprint of a farm can be time consuming.
This challenge grows for the finance and investment sector who may want to evaluate a portfolio of farms.
The good news is that many farmers already collect up to 90% of the information needed to calculate their greenhouse gas footprint. There is also a range of digital data sets for climate and soils to support these calculations.
A tool that makes the most of existing data
FarmPrint will not only allow a user to manually add data and see the results in a web browser, but it will also have an Application Programming Interface (API).
The API will allow FarmPrint to read data from other software and data sources, greatly reducing the need for manual data entry. It will give the ability to evaluate a whole portfolio of farms.
FarmPrint has a cradle to gate approach and conforms to Australian and IPCC reporting standards.
It measures not just the greenhouse gas output of on-farm activities but also the embedded emissions that are found elsewhere in the supply chain, for example in fertilisers, chemicals and diesel.
