This special issue of The Rangeland Journal examines options for the beef industry in northern Australia to improve efficiencies while reducing greenhouse has emissions.

Climate Clever Beef is a project that aims to help northern Australian beef cattle producers improve their production efficiency and business resilience.

This special issue of The Rangeland Journal examines options for the beef industry in northern Australia to contribute to this initiative to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and to engage in the carbon economy (‘carbon farming’). It presents new knowledge based on the modelling of case studies at paddock, whole property and regional scales, and on field studies that examine the relationships between soil and vegetation carbon, grazing and other environmental impacts.

Limitations to adoption, incentives and adoption pathways of new or alternate management practices by beef producers were also examined. The majority of the work was conducted through the Climate Clever Beef initiative supported by the Queensland state, Northern Territory and Australian Governments together with Meat and Livestock Australia, regional Natural Resource Management groups, CSIRO and collaborating beef producers.
