New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre
The New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre’s goal is to discover, develop and make available practical and cost-effective technologies and practices for New Zealand farmers and growers to reduce agricultural greenhouse gas emissions.
AgResearch is one of nine members of the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre (NZAGRC) that hold much of New Zealand's capacity and research in targeting the reduction of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions. We partner with the Pastoral Greenhouse Gas Research Consortium.
AgResearch hosts the NZAGRC and we are the largest provider of pastoral agriculture research and development.
Goals and objectives
The NZAGRC’s strategic goal and objectives focus specifically on:
Reducing emissions of biogenicmethaneandnitrous oxidefrom land-based industries, including through land use change and redesigned farm systems
Carbon sequestrationin agricultural, horticultural and cropping soils
Advancing research and development to the point where mitigation solutions can be directly applied by industry or transferred to a third party for delivery/commercialisation.
