Irish Journal of Agricultural & Food Research;2009, Vol. 48 Issue 2, p275
Academic Journal
The article focuses on a study on the change in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in dairy production in Ireland. Researchers assessed the change of GHG emissions in mineral-nitrogen-fertiliser-based and clover-based systems. The study revealed that clover-based system could significantly reduced GHG emissions.

    Freshwater marshes could be a source of greenhouse gases emission because they contain large amounts of soil carbon and nitrogen. These emissions are strongly influenced by exogenous nitrogen. We investigate the effects of exogenous nitrogen on ecosystem respiration (CO2), CH4 and N2O emissions...
