Farming For A Better Climate

Farming For A Better Climate logoFarming for a Better Climate (FFBC) combines ideas trialled by our volunteer Climate Change Focus Farms and information from up-to-the-minute scientific research.

Our agricultural consultants offer practical advice to help you choose the most relevant measures to improve both your farm performance and resilience to future climate change effects. We can help your farm to thrive in a carbon-conscious future and adapt to a changing climate to secure farm viability for future generations.

Following the success of the initial four Climate Change Focus Farms, five new farms have volunteered to investigate the on-farm business benefits from taking a low carbon approach.

With support from SRUC, the Climate Change Focus Farmers are able to work though a range of practical options to see what additional benefits low-carbon activities can bring to farms across Scotland.
