Reward farmers & communities.

Reward and recognize mitigation of carbon . All wind producers and surrounding neighbours should be recognized for this.

Why the contribution is important

Because this is helping climate change targets and is making us more energy efficient and secure.

    Beef & Dairy Agricultural is a contributes to emissions.. so perhaps rewarding the industry to move away from the production of these products to plant based products would be better.

    Through grant incentives all farmers should be encouraged to become Carbon farmers. The number one priority here is to increase SOG - soil organic matter - as this has the effect of sequestering carbon. Stopping ploughing, agroforestry, the building up of multi-species herb-rich pastures, mob grazing, use of clover instead of artificial fertilisers - all these practices will increase SOG.

    Anything which can be should be done to promote change. Farmers are heavily subsidised. Any monies given should be related to actions which promotes zero carbon practices

    I totally agree with previous 2 comments. Those who profit from current destructive farming practices are global corporations who sell the chemicals and products destroying our soil and ecosystem. These products - could they be subject to a hefty import tax? And any that are manufactured in Scotland should be closed down with just transition for employees.
