Agrecalc is the market-leading farm carbon calculator – a software solution that makes farm greenhouse gas emissions visible, helping actors across the food supply chain take confident and cost-effective steps towards a net-zero future. By benchmarking and monitoring farm GHG emissions, we are supporting agriculture’s transition to a low-carbon future. This aims to foster global agricultural sustainability by decreasing carbon footprint and increasing production efficiency.
Agrecalc produces precise carbon footprint reports for all farm enterprises by:
The Agrecalc farm carbon calculator also allows users to simulate scenarios to understand the impact of potential changes and monitor progress.
With Group Access Portals it enables easy performance comparison across different systems, identifying practical and green management actions to boost productivity.
Our core model is based on greenhouse gas reporting guidelines published by the IPCC for national inventories. The Agrecalc farm carbon calculator also incorporates more specific national figures from the UK National Greenhouse Gas Inventory.
Our methods are certified by PAS 2050:2011, a UK standard for the robust quantification of product carbon footprints.
Emissions (of all GHGs) are typically displayed in terms of CO2 equivalent (CO2e) as an emissions intensity (Co2e / unit of output), commonly known as carbon footprint.

Since inception in 2007, Agrecalc has produced more than 17,000 carbon reports for 7,600+ farm enterprises, and collaborated with more than 180 agricultural consultants. Our farm carbon calculator is underpinned by the latest published scientific research by SRUC researchers and advisors.
Agrecalc has also been identified in “Preparing for Sustainable Farming”, Track One of the Scottish Government’s National Testing Programme* as the carbon footprint calculator with recommendations supplied as part of the audit.
In addition, Agrecalc is recognised in other emerging government programmes, like DEFRA’s Future Farm Resilience (FFR) in England, and with AHDB’s Farm Excellence Platform (FEP) across the UK.
