Clearing the Carbon Confusion

posted 23 Nov 2011, 22:06 by Taiss Q
Carbon has certainly been a hot topic lately, with a lot of hype and ideas flying around. These sessions aim to clear the air about carbon and what it means for farms and the agricultural industry. 

These sessions will help set the record straight about the current policy environment relating to carbon and how to best approach it from a farmers perspective. 

Speakers include: 
David Griffin, Policy Manager, DPI Melbourne 
Neil Baker, Macalister Demonstration Farm Manager, Maffra Irrigation region 

Questions answered during the sessions will include: 
·        What is the difference between the Carbon Farming Initiative and the Carbon price policy? 
·        How will both of these policies affect your farm? 
·        What are some of the opportunities for farmers? 
·        What practical options can you consider now to reduce the impact of these policies and improve profitability into the future?
