There are Four ZNE-Ag CRC Research Programs.
RESEARCH PROGRAM 1:
Low-emissions plant solutions
This program will develop solutions for low-emissions broad-acre and horticultural systems, as well as reduce emissions in cattle and sheep via the delivery of anti-methanogenic plant properties and low-emissions, high-productivity mixed-species pastures.
RESEARCH PROGRAM 2:
Towards methane-free cattle and sheep
This program will provide the technology and quantification required to transition livestock production to a low-methane emission future.
RESEARCH PROGRAM 3:
Whole-farm and mixed enterprise systems analysis
This program will integrate all the science emerging from the CRC to provide farmers with the guidelines, resources, metrics, and benchmarking tools required for a profitable transition to net-zero emissions.
RESEARCH PROGRAM 4:
Delivering Value from Net Zero
This program will develop renewable energy and circular economy solutions that create profitable opportunities for agribusinesses and rural communities. The program will improve supply chain management and enhance access to key export markets.
EDUCATION, TRAINING AND ADOPTION
The solutions will require large scale, complex, cutting-edge science, commercially enabled solutions. The faster these solutions progress, the more cumulative impact on emissions these will have up to 2050.
The CRC will create a national education, training and adoption program offering a suite of short, applied courses, co-created with industry, government and university partners, directly delivered to producers and supply chain participants through national platforms.
Demonstration sites will provide a hub for sector-wide outreach and engagement that is both feasible and accessible to drive adoption of emission reduction activities, methods and initiatives from the CRC.
