GrainGrowers welcomes the release of the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Australian Grains Baseline and Mitigation Assessment. These findings are important for industry benchmarking and recognise the challenges ahead for the grains sector considering the steps already taken by Australian growers in addressing emissions.

The CSIRO report was commissioned by GRDC to establish greenhouse gas emissions baseline for the Australian grains sector and to explore mitigation opportunities that maintain or increase productivity.

With the release of GrainGrowers climate policy in 2020 supporting net zero for agriculture by 2050, GrainGrowers has sought more research, education and tools for growers working out their best course of action and the release of the GRDC report greatly supports this.
