Cultural management practices can affect methane emissions in rice

furrow irrigation

Methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) are both considered greenhouse gases which can be lost from agricultural fields. In general, flooded agricultural fields display a higher methane loss while upland fields display a higher nitrous oxide loss. New rice cultural management practices such as furrow-irrigated rice (row rice) and alternate wetting and drying (AWD) may result in less methane with ... Read More »
