Soil carbon farming: What's in it for me?

There is increasing emphasis on the importance of agricultural soils as a store for tonnes of carbon each year, not least in terms of helping the sector meet its commitment to net zero by 2040. But what measures are needed to make soils an effective carbon sink, and what added value can sequestration bring to the farm business? The panel explores soil carbon farming not only as a possible future revenue stream but also in terms of how regenerative farming practices can help store carbon to improve soil health and overall productivity.

The road to net zero

The second in our Transition Summit webinars looks at how to adjust your farming system to qualify for the new environmental payments, including ELM.

Our sector has some very ambitious plans for achieving net zero before the government’s 2050 deadline. The NFU has set the goal of reaching net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the whole of agriculture in England and Wales by 2040.

We address how can you lower emissions and achieve net zero while still running a productive business.

The pathway to productivity

Productivity – the art of producing the same output with fewer inputs or more output with the same inputs – was the subject of our latest Transition Summit webinar.

As farm policy changes and Basic Payment Scheme funding is phased out, farmers must seek to secure more of their income from the marketplace – bringing productivity even more sharply into focus.

In this webinar, experts and representatives from across the industry look at how to achieve productivity on any farm.

Successful soil

Improving soil health and soil carbon sequestration rates not only helps you farm more efficiently but as a form of delivering an environmental and public good can pay tenfold. What are the next steps? What will the connection between the Agricultural bill and the Environmental bill mean for UK farmers? How can we prepare for standardized soil health measurements and benchmarks to lead regulation going forward?

Benefitting from biodiversity

Increasing biodiversity on the farm has many benefits for wildlife and can increase resilience in the agroecosystem. But can you free up land without losing yield and what will it cost to maintain? Where do you start and how do you measure it? Will government grants compensate for taking land out of production? We address these challenges against the backdrop of the Agriculture Bill and biodiversity net gain in this live webinar.

Public access to private land

The direction of policy change means there are clear opportunities for farmers to reap financial rewards from public access. Public access can be provided by a landowner as a community benefit or it can be granted under a scheme such as Countryside Stewardship. Some landowners are also cashing in on the surge in dog ownership, letting out whole fields specifically for dog walkers. Join our experts as we debate the dos and don’ts of public access to private land.

Solar farm leases: What you need to know

Have you considered turning some of your land into a solar farm but didn’t have the time to look into it? Or maybe it all sounds too complex? Depending on the suitability of your land, a leased solar farm could provide a stable alternative income source. Despite the withdrawal of government support for new schemes, developers are looking for sites. Join us for a live Q&A webinar session and ask the experts about your particular circumstances.
