"Climate friendly agriculture” manual available for download
The manual “Climate friendly agriculture. Evaluations and improvements for energy and greenhouse gas emissions at the farm level in the European Union” is now available for download in 5 languages in the “Documents” section.
This document was coordinated by Solagro and it reflects the outcomes of the AgriClimateChange project. A brief introduction about the project and ACCT is followed by the “Results from the diagnosis per farming systems”, which includes bananas, olives, fruit production, vineyards, rice cultivation, etc.
The action plans are also analysed, as well as different case studies from all the participating countries and referring to crop systems, dairy systems and arboriculture and viticulture systems.
Moreover, additional information related to farming and climate change is also available on the “Other documents” section of the website. These documents include the report “Quelle contribution de l’agriculture française à la réduction des émissions de gaz à effet de serre ? Potentiel d'atténuation et coût de dix actions techniques” elaborated by INRA last july. This report was also analysed by Sylvain Pellerin in the European Conference “Climate-friendly agriculture for Europe” organised in the framework of the AgriClimateChange project (see “Conference” section).
