The Climate Challenge

Climate change is happening. It is affecting us now and, if we do not act, more so in the future.  So, what are the causes and implications for our region, what can we do to mitigate the effects, and what is the role for agriculture?

  • The facts and figures? Prof Iain Stewart, University of Plymouth
  • Cornwall’s role in the climate emergency. Peter Lefort, Cornwall Council
  • The climate challenge and the role of grazing livestock. Prof Michael Lee, Rothamsted Research

Examples of best practice

  • Bill Clarke, Trewithen Dairy, discusses soil health with Tom Tolputt a farmer and agronomist helping Trewithen’s dairy supply chain
  • Becky Willson, Farm Carbon Toolkit, discusses carbon accounting tools and how they can help develop a carbon reduction strategy for the farm
  • Bennamann and a farm perspective on methane capture and consumption
