      Agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions contribute approximately 12% to total global anthropogenic GHG emissions. Cereals (rice, wheat, and maize) are the largest source of human calories, and it is estimated that world cereal production must increase by % annually to to meet growing by: This book is designed to provide needed guidance on measurement methods to: National agricultural research centers (NARS).

    Agriculture is highly at risk from climate change, requiring urgent adaptation response in coming years to meet global food supply. At the same time, agriculture emits significant amounts of greenhouse gases (GHG) into the atmosphere, so that mitigation in agriculture features prominently in many country climate change response plans.

Assessment of Greenhouse Gas Mitigation in California Agricultural Soils is the final report for the Integrated Assessment of the Biophysical and Economic Potential for Greenhouse Gas Mitigation in California Agricultural Soils project (Contract Number ‐02‐) conducted by. When considering greenhouse gas mitigation, it is important to consider all of the greenhouse gases together as a management practice suitable for reducing one gas may increase emissions of another.

Successful greenhouse gas mitigation options for agricultural soils will likely be those that provide other economic and environmental benefits and Cited by: 6. Assessment of nitrous oxide emissions in California's dairy systems (ContractCompleted in ) Nitrous oxide (N 2 O), a greenhouse gas, is produced by soil microorganisms.

Nitrogen (N) inputs, soil moisture and carbon stimulate the production of this gas, which accounts for about one third of all GHGs from California’s agriculture sector.

Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Opportunities in California Agriculture Review of California Cropland Emissions Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Practices in California Agriculture: %), and agricultural soil management (the practice of utilizing fertilizers, soil amendments, and irrigation to optimize crop production; %).

Agricultural soils may also act as a sink or source for CO 2, but the net flux is small. Many agricultural practices can potentially mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the most prominent of which are improved cropland and grazing land management and restoration of degraded lands and cultivated organic by: Potential for Greenhouse Gas Mitigation in California Agricultural Soils”—Six 2 The proposed decision-support assessment tool will provide a more complete accounting of land use and management impacts on C stocks and associated CO 2, N 2O, and CH 4 fluxes between California agricultural soils and the atmosphere.

Activities and Results. Many agricultural practices can potentially mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the most prominent of which are improved cropland and grazing land management. For soil carbon, estimates of soil C storage, CO 2 mitigation potential and the low and high values for the 95% confidence interval were derived using mixed-effect modelling on a large dataset of long-term agricultural soil carbon experiments from a variety of countries, though temperate studies were more prevalent in the database (Ogle et al Cited by: A Farm-Level Assessment of the Potential for Managing Agricultural Land for Greenhouse Gas Mitigation within the United States This report presents an analysis of the greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation potential asso-ciated with changes in U.S.

Introduction. Agricultural production contributes 20–35% of global anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHGs), while meeting human food consumption requirements. Although agriculture is becoming increasingly GHG efficient at the global scale, total GHG emissions from this sector continue to increase at a rate of approximately 1% per year.To achieve the climate stabilization target of the Author: Xing Fan, Wen Zhang, Weiwei Chen, Bin Chen.
