Fullständiga växthusgasbudgetar för odlade mulljordar skapar underlag för klimatsmarta åtgärder

| Type artikkel: Forskningsprosjekt

Kategori: Klima og miljø

Conventional technology is virtually unable to measure complete GHG budgets of drained organic soils, which may provide misleading results. So, global estimates of GHG emissions are based on coarse assumptions that don’t take into account the complexity of agroecosystems. Better data are needed for evidence-based rulings on mitigation.

Reviews and syntheses: Review of causes and sources of N2O emissions and NO3 leaching from organic arable crop rotations

| Type artikkel: Publisert studie

Kategori: Klima og miljø, Økologisk landbruk

The emissions of nitrous oxide (N2O) and leaching of nitrate (NO3) from agricultural cropping systems have considerable negative impacts on climate and the environment. Although these environmental burdens are less per unit area in organic than in non-organic production on average, they are roughly similar per unit of product. If organic farming is to maintain its goal of being environmentally friendly, these loadings must be addressed.
