Agricultural Impact on Green House Gas Emissions

Agriculture is an important sector when dealing with climatic changes as greenhouse gasses emissions account for a significant amount of concentration. Although modern agriculture is the outcome of experiences gained over decades of traditional farming practices, modern agricultural methods have made agriculture one of the significant contributors to global warming through a share of about 10–12% increase in total anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. In today’s practice, most of the country’s farmers are used for chemical fertilizer because it takes less effort to use them. With time, with the continuous use of chemical fertilizers, the soil has adapted to those chemicals, and the organic fertilizer doesn’t give that much harvest due to this reason. As a result, farmers tend to use chemical fertilizers, which would increase their yield. In evaluating options for implementing mitigation measures, reducing chemical fertilizers must be paid massive attention to. Other than that, it is vital to focus on other agricultural practices and modern ways that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which have a positive impact on the environment.
