This review evaluates the effects of silage characteristics on enteric methane (CH4) emission from ruminants by performing a meta-analysis. A total of 17 studies were selected from the literature, and the relationship between CH4 yield (g/kg dry matter [DM] intake) and silage characteristics was...

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...

Enteric methane from ruminants accounts for about 11-17% of methane generated globally, or 17-30% of methane from human activity. Methane arises from the activity of methanogens in the rumen that use hydrogen to reduce carbon dioxide, thereby preventing the accumulation of reducing equivalents,...

The overall purpose of this review is to assess current and future greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from irrigated rice fields with emphasis on the ongoing trends in both, (i) crop and residue management practices and (ii) global climate change. While irrigated rice fields were traditionally flooded...
