FARM ONLINE | Australian croppers' emissions among lowest in the world



AUSTRALIAN grain growers will be able to sell their agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions credentials with confidence according to the findings of a recent Grains Research and Development Corporation commissioned report.


Grain Producers Australia chair Barry Large welcomed the policy debate the report will spark..


Mr Large in particular welcomed the report's focus on highlighting the work Australian grain producers are already doing, to continue producing grains sustainably and building a strong reputation.


"In order to continue producing grains more sustainably, Australian grain producers also need to be more profitable - especially when we compete against other export countries where those growers receive massive government subsidies, to help mitigate production risk-management," Mr Large said.
