The Simpson Centre has accessed various sources of data to provide detailed farm-to-gate estimates for major agriculture products. On each page you will find recent emissions data estimates per unit of product, complete with all references. Note that all GHG emissions figures are, by their nature, estimates, and vary based upon assumptions. All assumptions are noted as well. We encourage caution when comparing to other sources of emissions estimates, as assumptions may vary.
