Entrepreneur’s Hour: FarmLab and Precision Pastures adding value in the Carbon Credit Market – Armidale

About this Event

We know that farmers can generate significant returns on investment in carbon farming, however some properties will be more difficult to generate returns from than others. With a significant upfront cost to farm carbon, it is important for property owners to understand what kinds of returns they might target and whether farming carbon is a good idea in their operation. Please join us to hear from entrepreneurs Sam Duncan of FarmLab and Milton Curkpatrick from Precision Pastures to describe how their businesses are addressing soil carbon measurement. 

Guest speaker appearance by leading scientist and international carbon market experts Greg Bender and Norman Marshall, Directors ASM, who will provide case studies on previous Carbon Farming projects.
