The Pastoral Greenhouse Gas Research Consortium (PGgRc) exists to provide knowledge and tools for New Zealand farmers, so they can mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from the agricultural sector.
The PGgRc is funded by eight New Zealand agricultural sector partners and works in collaboration with the New Zealand Government.

This brochure explains the trends in emissions, where New Zealand needs to go and the science that is in the pipeline to provide solutions.
