12pm-1pm AEDT | Wednesday 17 November

The management of carbon is not only important for soil health and productive vegetable crops, but is also increasingly important in carbon markets and reducing the effects of climate change.

Join the Soil Wealth ICP team and industry-leading researchers, practitioners and growers for a webinar on Wednesday 17 November which will tackle some of the most important questions about carbon management on vegetable farms, including:

  • What is the importance of soil carbon in vegetable production systems?
  • Why should vegetable growers care about reducing carbon emissions?
  • What are the opportunities for vegetable growers under the Emissions Reduction Fund?
  • When could participating in the Emissions Reduction Fund be viable for annual horticulture?
  • How do you calculate an emissions profile for your vegetable farm?

A range of practical articles and podcasts will be published following the event and will be available to webinar registrants.

This session will also be broadcast live at the sold-out  Zero Emissions Farming: Towards 2050 conference. This single-day conference will explore the benefits of zero-emission farming, showcasing the latest research and technology information, and industry progress towards CN2050.

Zero Emissions Farming: Towards 2050 is supported by the Port Phillip Western Port Catchment Management Authority (PPWCMA) with funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program, the National Recovery and Resilience Agency, Mornington Peninsula Shire and CommBank, in partnership with Melbourne Water and AUSVEG.
