Can agriculture be more climate friendly? Measuring the impact of sustainable agricultural practices on greenhouse gas emissions

CIAT, with the Watershed Organisation Trust (WOTR), is working to assess the impact of various soil conservation practices on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from agricultural soils in India. The work investigates how agricultural practices could potentially lead to reductions in GHG emissions, and highlights the pressing need for research allowing the quantification of GHG emissions of ongoing agricultural practices in order to better understand their impacts.
