ith agriculture accounting for 9% of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions and many farmers looking to alternative income streams to survive,


ad has emerged as the leading sustainable diversification option. affording farmers numerous benefits including waste management, energy generation, additional income, biofertiliser, a drop in emissions and better crop yields, it’s little wonder that more and more forward-thinking farmers are embracing ad’s climate-smart potential and developing their own on-farm plants.


but there is still more to be done so adba is working hard to remove any remaining barriers to on-farm ad success. Liaising with government on the use of purpose grown crops in ad and the future of digestate regulation, and establishing a farmers’ consultancy service are just a few of the steps that adba is taking to help farmers increase their profits and yields, cut their emissions and produce their own power.
