COMET-Farm is a conservation planning tool used to assess a farm’s greenhouse gas balance. The user-friendly tool provides a step-by-step framework for establishing a baseline of emissions (based on historic land use) and then assesses the current greenhouse gas balance based on current crop/pasture management, livestock size and management, and on-farm energy use. This tool enables users to generate a report to compare alternative management strategies and to what extent alternate scenarios would provide carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas emissions reduction.

COMET-Energy is a stand-alone tool that allows users to calculate reductions in greenhouse gas emissions based on anticipated fuel savings. COMET-Energy can be used by itself or in conjunction with COMET-Farm.
