Adaptive Carbon Farming (HITTI)

Duration: 1.3.2022 – 31.12.2024

Contact person: Eija Hagelberg, BSAG eija.hagelberg@bsag.fi

Funding: Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Catch the Carbon development project


The aim of the project is to develop adaptive carbon farming methods in two regional pilots, disseminate information for further use in the agricultural sector, and create a model for piloting and developing adaptive carbon farming methods elsewhere. Adaptive carbon farming methods are piloted by two core groups of 6-7 farmers. A situational grazing pilot will take place in the Pirkanmaa region and a situational maximization of green weeks in the Uusimaa region. The core teams test the methods, utilizing the latest measurement technology in addition to peer learning and Holistic Management training. Regional groups will be formed around the core groups, and the results will be scaled more widely across the country. A short documentary film will be produced on the progress of the project. Also, the economic and intangible benefits of the measures will be documented on all farms. The Adaptive Carbon Farming project is based on research data, in particular, carbon research data and farmer experiences gathered on BSAG´s Carbon Action platform. The project will be farmer-driven and will strengthen peer learning for farmers.
