Low Carbon Agriculture Show 2024 a resounding success

More than two hundred people visited the stand for a chat and to see the demo of our cutting-edge platform-as-a-service, Agrecalc Cloud, making it the most successful event for Agrecalc so far.

More than two hundred visitors of the Low Carbon Agriculture Show 2024 stopped by our stand to say hello and to see the demo of our cutting-edge platform-as-a-service, Agrecalc Cloud, as well as to participate in our ‘Guess the footprint of a livestock feed’ competition. The winner has been announced on our social media channels, and will soon be receiving their whisky pack.

Measure and benchmark your resource use first, says Julian Bell

The turnout exceeded all expectations, creating unforgettable moments for the team and everyone involved. In particular, the Carbon Farming session on Day 1, at the Environmental Business Theatre, was a packed and engaging event.

In addition to insightful presentations by industry leaders like Andrew Ferguson from the Waitrose & Partners Farm, Leckford Estate, Ian Thompson from Laurence Gould Partnership, and James Elliot from Green Alliance, Agrecalc’s Principal Consultant and Agriculture Director, Julian Bell, delivered a compelling address on ‘Understanding your current levels and sources of emissions’.

The presentation detailed opportunities that lie in the uptake of low carbon farming measures, like productivity improvements and reduction of emissions from soils, for example. He also demonstrated, through case studies, how knowing your baseline numbers and applying scenario planning, can add up percentage-wise, to reach the targets set by the UK and international governments.

Chaired by Delyth Lewis-Jones, AHDB’s Head of Environment, the session drew a full house, with attendees overflowing into the aisles. Following the presentations was a stimulating discussion that left the audience eager for more information, culminating in a resounding round of applause for the speakers.

Key messages from Agrecalc's presentation during the Carbon Farming session were: know your numbers, identify business hotspots, make decisions based on data and reduce emissions through increased resource efficiency. Choose a tool and stay with it, so you can remeasure year after year - your best benchmark is yourself.

Every seat filled in the Environmental Business Theatre, with attendees overflowing into the aisles.
