Details

The greenhouse gas emission projections for UK agriculture in this paper are an up-date to the previous projections produced by DECC in March 2011.

Total greenhouse gas emissions from the sector are projected to fall by around 2% by 2020, over 2009 levels. Previously they were projected to rise by 4%.

The latest emission projections are based on activity projections from the AFBI FAPRI model of UK agriculture.
