Welcome to SAC Consulting's AgRE Calc

Making more efficient use of resources i.e. inputs, strongly correlates with reduced production costs per kg of output, improving profitability of the farm business. 

A resource use assessment, also known as a carbon footprint shows the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions produced from routine farm activities, highlighting areas where changes can be made that, when implemented, will reduce emissions. The three main greenhouse gases produced from agriculture include carbon dioxide, produced by burning fossil fuels; methane, produced as a natural by-product of animal digestion and; nitrous oxide which is released from soils following the application of nitrogen fertiliser (manufactured and organic) and soil disturbance.
