Beyond Zero Emissions recently released research – Land Use: Agriculture and Forestry – has found that the best part of half our greenhouse gas emissions come from land clearing, savannah burning and methane from livestock. The discussion paper takes six farms as case studies of how to reduce or balance out these emissions by carbon sequestering plants, cell grazing and increasing soil richness. BZE Radio’s Vivien Langford speaks to Colin Seis’s farm Winona is at Gulgong NSW and he features in the report.
