Increases in the concentrations of greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and halocarbons in the atmosphere due to human activities are associated with global climate change. The concentration of N2O has increased by 16% since 1750. Although the atmospheric concentration of N2O is much smaller (314 ppb in 1998) than of CO2 (365 ppm), its global warming potential (cumulative radiative forcing) is 296 times that of the latter in a 100-year time horizon… 
Comparative Analysis of Nitrous Oxide Fluxes in Dryland Cropping Systems
Agricultural activities influence atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gasses (GHG), e.g. carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide, (N2O), and contribute about 20% of the world’s
Magnitude and biophysical regulators of methane emission and consumption in the Australian agricultural, forest, and submerged landscapes: a review
Increases in the concentrations of atmospheric greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O) due to human activities are associated with global climate change. CO2
The Role of Microbial Community Function in Spatial and Temporal Variation of Nitrogen Trace Gas Emissions from California Perennial Cropping Systems
Global climatic change is known to be directly associated with increases in atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHG’s) such as carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4).
Greenhouse Gases from Crop Fields
A rapid increase in atmospheric concentrations of the three main anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHGs), like carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), is evident from measurements
GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS FROM SUGARCANE SOILS AND NITROGEN FERTILISER MANAGEMENT: II By
Emissions of the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4) from a sugarcane crop have been measured for the whole of the 2005–2006 growing season of 342 days. The
N2O emissions from southeast Australia
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is an extremely potent long-lived greenhouse gas that also significantly depletes stratospheric ozone. The global concentration of atmospheric N2O has been increasing
1 Emissions of Nitrous Oxide ( N 2 O ) and DiNitrogen ( N 2 ) from the Agricultural Landscapes , Sources , Sinks , and Factors Affecting N 2 O and N 2 Ratios
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is one of the key greenhouse and ozone (O3) depleting gas, constituting 7% of the anthropogenic greenhouse effect. On a molecular basis, N2O has 310 and 16 times higher global

Fertilizer nitrogen (N) is not used efficiently in irrigation agriculture because much of the N applied is lost from the plant-soil system by emission of gaseous compounds to the atmosphere. Nitrogen

TLDR
None of the annual cropping systems provided net mitigation, although soil carbon accumulation in no-till systems came closest to mitigating all other sources of GWP, and the late successional system, GWP was neutral because of significant methane oxidation.
