We carry out the environmental assessment of the farm with CAP'2ER and then determine with the farmer the levers of relevant actions to be implemented to reduce its GHG emissions. LIFE Carbon Farming allows us to compare our French experience with our European neighbours while involving farmers, which is very enriching.
