Evaluating GHG emissions in irrigated cropping system

Enhanced-efficiency fertilizer can reduce nitrous oxide emissions from irrigated cropping systems, but results suggest possible crop-dependent effect.

Agricultural production in the western U.S. is an important part of the global food supply. However, due to concerns over effects from agricultural greenhouse gases (GHGs) on the global climate, there is a need to understand how the nitrogen source affects emissions from cropping systems in semiarid environments.

In a paper recently published in the Soil Science Society of America Journal, researchers reported on the GHG emissions of nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide and methane
