Pesticide Mitigation Strategies for Surface Water Quality

Lei Guo (Redaktør) ; Amrith Gunasekara (Redaktør) ; Laura McConnell (Redaktør)

Understanding Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Agricultural Management addresses global warming, one of the most pressing environmental concerns of our times. The agricultural sector is the largest source of global anthropogenic nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4), both of which are potent greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. Les mer

Understanding Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Agricultural Management addresses global warming, one of the most pressing environmental concerns of our times. The agricultural sector is the largest source of global anthropogenic nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4), both of which are potent greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. The book provides a comprehensive overview of important issues related to greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural
systems, including measurement of greenhouse gas emissions in agricultural fields, development of alternative management practices as mitigation measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and greenhouse gas accounting methodologies and modeling. Both crop and animal production systems are addressed by
internationally acclaimed experts in the field. The diverse topics presented in the book will help the readers grasp quickly the fundamental as well as practical aspects of managing greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural systems. The book serves as a valuable source of information for researchers and environmental practitioners on the most updated knowledge of greenhouse gas emissions from field crops and livestock animals. It can also be used as reference material for an upper-level
environmental or agricultural sciences course on global warming.
