Why is machinery use not considered for the beef and dairy module, unlike the crop module?


The fuel use estimates in the crop module consider machinery, but also soil texture and fuel. In the beef and dairy modules, we do no collect soil information, but only consider the total amount of fuel used. As machinery operations are very different to the current crop approach, the list would be incomplete for this type of farm. However, the Alliance currently considers to include operations relevant to grassland operations into the beef and dairy module.
