GLRPPR Sector Resource: Agriculture’s Role in Greenhouse Gas Emissions & Capture

Title:
Agriculture’s Role in Greenhouse Gas Emissions & Capture

Abstract:
The report summarizes current knowledge of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4) emissions and capture across six regions--Northeast, Southeast, Corn Belt, Northern Great Plains, Southern Great Plains, and Pacific--as influenced by cropping system, tillage, and soil management. The report also outlines conservation agricultural systems and practices including: no-till, reduced tillage, cover crops, leguminous green manures, and nutrient-use efficiency--that, when adopted, will result in increased capture and reduced emissions of these GHGs. Additionally, critical knowledge gaps for research are identified.
