Quantifying the greenhouse gas footprint of crop cultivation

(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences) The GHG footprint is an index used to indicate the climate change impact potential exerted by crop production. However, severe problems or drawbacks in the quantification of GHG footprints still exist, which has limited the applicability of the GHG footprint in crop cultivation. A generic methodological framework is proposed to quantify the GHG footprints of crop cultivation systems free from grazing.
