Agricultural soil acts as a source and sink of important greenhouse gases (GHGs) like methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and carbon dioxide (CO2). Rice paddies have been a major concern to scientific community, because they produce the threatening and long-lasting GHGs mainly CH4 and N2O. Around 30% and 11% of global agricultural CH4 and N2O, respectively, emitted from rice fields. Thus, it is urgent to concurrently quantify the fluxes of CH4 and N2O to improve understanding of both the gases… Expand

Estimation of methane emission from rice fields using static closed chamber technique in Tiruchirapalli District
Temperature and rainfall (climate) have mostly determined traditional agricultural practices on the Earth. Agriculture is the main source income for the majority of population living in the South andExpand
Fertilizer management practices and greenhouse gas emissions from rice systems: A quantitative review and analysis
Abstract Flooded rice systems emit both methane (CH 4 ) and nitrous oxide (N 2 O). Elevated CH 4 emissions in rice systems can lead to a high global warming potential (GWP) relative to other crops,Expand
Management of Paddy Soil towards Low Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sustainable Rice Production in the Changing Climatic Conditions
Climate change is a vital environmental issue for the twenty-first century, which may significantly affect rice productivity and accelerate greenhouse gas emissions from paddy ecosystem, which is ofExpand

The overall global warming potential of each approach to consider the magnitude of its effects on all gases is estimated and a comprehensive assessment of suitable crop management practices for reducing GHG emissions in rice culture is provided. Expand
High nitrous oxide fluxes from rice indicate the need to manage water for both long- and short-term climate impacts
Results suggest that N2O emissions from rice across the Indian subcontinent might be 30–45 times higher under intensified use of intermittent flooding than under continuous flooding, and data indicate that comanagement of water with inorganic nitrogen and/or organic matter inputs can decrease climate impacts caused by greenhouse gas emissions up to 90% and nitrogen management might not be central to N 2O reduction.

Effects of foliar application of plant growth hormone on methane emission from tropical rice paddy
It can be concluded that foliar application of indole acetic acid and kinetin can be an effective measure for regulating methane emission from rice paddies coupled with increase in economic yield of the most popular crop of this region. Expand
