Can diesel fuel farming forever?

The May-June edition of NSW Farmers ‘The Farmer’ magazine looks at workable alternatives to diesel for on-farm use in the face of soaring prices, supply chain interruptions and pressure to decarbonise. NSW DPI’s very own John O’Connor is quoted in the article, pointing out that substituting renewable diesel for petroleum diesel is an emerging pathway to reduce reliance on imported, high emissions petroleum diesel, compatible with existing diesel-powered farm machinery and vehicles. Other alternative fuels to diesel, such as biodiesel and hydrogen, and battery and hydrogen fuel cell electric technologies are also examined in the article.
