  • 6. Other information about tasks in WP2?
  • 7. Planning of execution of WP3
  • Kaspars Naglis-Leipa and Diana Ruska and a Dutch team member will visit SRUC team in week of June 6th work on WP3:
    -Agrecalc tool – exercise with examples of making more runs by inputting alternative practices; define a set of manageable practices.
    -Define some manageable practices for ANCA tool
    -Procedure for collecting manageable and useful practices (2?) for each study farm to be simulated with the NPC tool (with help of local team member).
    -Making scheme (procedure, time line, etc.) for applying Agrecalc on most study farms and ANCA on 1 or 2 farms per partner country.
    -Outline guideline to calculate economic aspects of a certain mitigation strategy / farm practice per study farm in a simplified way
    -Making template for describing a short farm mitigation plan (plan to be prepared for each farm by local team)
    -Other issues to be addressed .............

  • 8. Mitigation practices/strategies. A table with emission mitigation practices was prepared by Paul Galama, and collected by the partner countries. The goal was to get a global idea about mitigation practices in the various partner counties.
  • Paul Galama is working on adding some additional questions to it. You will hear further about this.

  • 9. Deliveries and milestones
  • 10. Other issues?
