COP26: Working together to reduce emissions from Scottish farms?

With COP26 front and centre in the news, farmers and land managers are ready to rise to the challenge of climate change. But what could this mean in practice, what are we already doing, what other practical steps could we take and how is research informing both science and practical actions on the ground?

Join award-winning agricultural journalist Ken Rundle and a panel of SRUC and SAC Consulting speakers for a FAS live on-farm broadcast at 7pm on Monday 15th November. The interactive event will review the main points to come out of the COP26 negotiations and what this could mean going forward, highlight some of the work already underway in Scotland to address emissions from agriculture and show what positive, practical steps farmers are already taking to demonstrate we are doing our bit, and importantly, talk about how this could also benefit your farm business.

From topics covering the scope for carbon sequestration in soils to minimising the climate-impact from livestock and work underway to inform research around agricultural practices and emissions, our panel of specialists are there to answer your questions around some of the challenges and opportunities, and show how agriculture can be part of the solution to help Scotland meet its climate change targets.

Your speakers on the night include:

  • Head of SRUC Farms George Baikie,
  • Vet Tim Geraghty,
  • Carbon Consultants Anna Sellars and Séamus Murphy,
  • Soil Scientist Paul Hargreaves
  • Beef Specialist Robert Ramsay
