Cloud innovation launches Scotland’s carbon calculator into next generation
AWARD-winning farm carbon calculator, Agrecalc, will be launching its state-of-the-art version of the platform – Agrecalc Cloud – at this year’s Royal Highland Show.
One of the first carbon calculators to enter the market when it launched in 2007, Agrecalc has been consistently iterated and developed based on intensive scientific research from Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) and feedback from farmers and the supply chain. To date, it has produced over 20,000 carbon reports for more than 9,000 farm enterprises.
It was recently created as a standalone compan.
Its Agricultural Systems Modeller, Kaia Waxenberg, said while growers are navigating a business world that increasingly demands proof of their sustainability, having an easy-to-use tool that helps them to understand and evidence their carbon efficiency is vital.
"This new Cloud-based version of Agrecalc is the culmination of years of collaborative work with scientists, farmers and industry specialists. We are looking to represent more of each unique farm system, to provide users with the tailored data they need to tell their climate story," said Kaia.
“Precision is key and a clear picture of their carbon management journey allows farmers to identify potential savings or inefficiencies to enable confident, data-informed decision making.”
The enhanced new platform, with all data held in the Cloud, includes a streamlined and easy-to-use interface as well as greater integration and flexibility with a wider list of crops and inputs
