P1d Carbon on NSW dairy farms

Dairy UP

The Dairy UP team is working with the NSW Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) to identify and evaluate options towards carbon neutral dairy production.

This Dairy UP project, led by Prof Luciano Gonzalez (USyd) includes many areas of research to gauge the best understanding of carbon on NSW dairy farms.

We are working with commercial farms to better understand the role of soil carbon and diets in the assessment of whole farm C balance.
Information collected will be combined and used to model the greenhouse gas balance for commercial intensive and pasture-based dairy farms in NSW.
