NFFN NI - Free carbon & biodiversity auditing for NFFN members

With COP26 highlighting the urgency of action needed to keep 1.5 degrees of warming within reach, the contribution required from the farming sector can’t be overstated.

This is why we’re delighted to announce that NFFN NI has been awarded funding through DAERA’s Environment Challenge Fund to deliver baseline carbon and biodiversity audits on NFFN member farms across Northern Ireland. This project is ideal for farmers of any size or system to take further steps towards becoming net-zero carbon contributors and to identify opportunities to increase biodiversity. This project will also aid the collection of important data that can help shape policy development within Northern Ireland. The approximate value of this audit is £1,700 offered free of charge.

A series of short educational videos will be produced as part of the project and will highlight measures that farmers can take to optimise soil health, carbon management and biodiversity recovery, covering a vast array of nature-friendly farming approaching including the Spade Test, rotational grazing, reduced cultivation, herbal leys, rotational hedgerow cutting, small woodland planting, winter seed mixes and winter stubble.
