Uncertainty about when emissions tech will hit farms

From Morning Report, 8:37 am on 17 June 2022

The agricultural sector says while there has been big strides in the research to reduce climate emissions, considerable uncertainty remains about when technology will actually be available for farmers.

The primary sector group He Waka Eke Noa's proposal to reduce farm emissions was criticised by climate activists for relying far too much on unproven technology.

Farmer group Groundswell also hates the proposal saying after decades and millions of dollars there is still no mitigation technology on the market.

Climate Reporter Hamish Cardwell asked the industry how long farmers will have to wait.
