Methane (CH4) emissions from rice fields were monitored in Hangzhou, China, from 1995 to 1998 by an automatic measurement system based on the "closed chamber technique." The impacts of water management, organic inputs, and cultivars on CH4 emission were evaluated. Under the local crop management system, seasonal emissions ranging from 53 to 557 kg CH4 ha−1 were observed with an average value of 182 kg CH4 ha−1. Methane emission patterns differed among rice seasons and were generally governed by… CONTINUE READING
