Low emissions farm systems for the Māori sector
This project aims to improve the capacity of Māori farmers to improve their efficiency and productivity while lowering greenhouse gas emissions.
Two Māori agri-business entities involving dairy, sheep and beef, forestry and horticulture are having their GHG emissions modelled including looking at how these emissions and profitability can be balanced at a business level.
In addition, the project investigates decision-making criteria and issues around introducing new GHG mitigation strategies and analyses any barriers to the uptake of such strategies.
