    Abstract

    Understanding baseline farm greenhouse gas emissions and how they may be mitigated requires a validated, standardised carbon accounting tool. This work demonstrates the extent to which efficiency measures can reduce emissions, and the degree of afforestation needed to enhance sequestration to off-set remaining emissions, enabling farms to reach net zero.
