Greenhouse gases (GHG: carbon dioxide, CO2; methane, CH4; and nitrous oxide, N2O) are produced as part of the carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) cycle on farms. Livestock production, N fertilizer use and rice cultivation are the main farm activities producing CH4 and N2O, while CO2 emissions are due to...

Nitrous oxide is an important greenhouse gas with a global warming potential of 298 times that of carbon dioxide. It is also responsible for the destruction of stratospheric ozone. Concentrations of nitrous oxide have shown continuous growth in the atmosphere over the past century, and nitrogen (N) ...

Jatropha curcas has gained widespread attention as a new-age 'energy crop' because the biodiesel that can be produced from the oil of their fruits has properties comparable with those of fossil fuels. Abiotic stresses have become an integral part of crop production. Although J. curcas has been...

Agricultural crop production depends upon judicious use of nitrogen (N) fertilizers to sustain yields. Globally, the N recovery rate by crops is about 60%, meaning that the rest of the N applied to agroecosystems is transformed to forms that are not available for crop uptake or are lost to the...

In most agroecosystems, nitrogen (N) is the most important nutrient limiting plant growth. One management strategy that affects N cycling and N use efficiency (NUE) is conservation agriculture (CA), an agricultural system based on minimum tillage, crop residue retention and crop rotation. This...

The inconvenient truth that the world cannot now feed itself without synthetic nitrogen fertilizer counterpoints the widespread concern about nitrate losses from agriculture. This review discusses the ways in which soil nitrate and the gaseous nitrous oxide produced from it are lost from arable and ...
