Carbon Farming Initiative gives opportunities for farmers

Farmers warm to the carbon economy
By Leone KnightTuesday, 26 June  2012 Carbon Farming Initiative workshops have been held across western NSW workshops to assist landholders understand the Initiative. Topics included the Carbon Farming Initiative basics, research results, environmental plantings, credit schemes, the impact on farmers and more. There were speakers from CO2, NSW Department of Primary Industries, Australian Farm Institute, and the Central West CMA.

Chris Mitchell from CO2 say, “its an opportunity, ….. but farmers need to treat it like any other new crop or enterprise, it does take time, information and research”. Farmers, miners and accountants attended and while some say it is complex and hard to understand, they all agreed it is an opportunity.
