carbon dioxide emission

Catalogue: Nuffield Scholar Reports
I firmly believe that farmers are in the business of producing multiple commodities not just wool or wheat but are custodians of the environment not just for themselves but for society as a whole... As my knowledge expanded and my business increased I began to pass on that knowledge to farmers in an effort to encourage them to plant natives on farms... In the past we have focused as farmers on production and maximising yields...

Cropping is expanding in the southern High Rainfall Zone (HRZ) and it is important that we provide farmers with management options that minimise greenhouse gas emissions without reducing productivity... Nitrous oxide emissions in excess of 3 kg nitrogen/hectare/year (equivalent to 1460 kg of carbon dioxide equivalents) have been measured when a high fertility legume pasture in the southern high rainfall zone was sprayed out and cropped with wheat... The management and mitigation options that we are testing in this project are direct drilling of wheat compared to conventional cultivation and the application of a nitrification inhibitor dicyandiamide (DCD), which temporarily shuts down the microbes in the soil nitrogen cycle that convert ammonium to nitrate, and slows the rate of nitrous oxide emission from the soil...
