The Government has put back start dates for farmers to report their climate change emissions, and for the pricing of agricultural emissions have been pushed back … but the delay is less than a year in both cases. Farm-level emissions reporting requirements will start from the 4th quarter of 2024, rather than the 1st quarter of next year. Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor also announced a split-gas approach, which will treat methane and nitrous oxide as separate to CO2…and a commitment to “set the price at the lowest level possible to meet the reduction goals”. More than $300 million was being invested over four years to get new tools and technology to reduce on-farm emissions to farmers quicker and provide extra on-the-ground support. The National Party has said it would stop agriculture being added to the ETS, and aimed to create an independent board to implement a pricing system for agricultural emissions, by 2030 at the latest.
