How to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from organic matter amended soil?
Agriculture is responsible for emissions of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrous oxide (N2O). Production of these gases in farmland soil results from biological processes like organic matter decomposition, nitrification and denitrification, and highly depends on organic matter inputs. We aim at analyzing effects of organic matter amendment on CO2 and N2O emissions. In particular, we are interested in agricultural soil amended with livestock compost.
We can propose the best organic matter management practices in rural areas according to scientific data analysis using new technologies.
