Nutrient management: nitrogenous fertilisers © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Efficient use of nitrogenous fertilisers can reduce N2O emissions from agricultural fields. In addition, by reducing the quantity of synthetic fertilisers required, improved management...

Off-field crop residue management © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Crop-residue management is an important mitigation technology using biomass, vermi-compost etc. processed under aerobic conditions which is being utilised as a commercial option to reduce...

Organic agriculture © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Organic agriculture is a production system which avoids or largely excludes the use of synthetic fertilisers, pesticides and growth regulators. It can sequester carbon using crop rotations, crop...

Rice production technologies © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Rice cultivation is responsible for 10% of GHG emissions from agriculture (Figure 1). In developing countries, the share of rice in GHG emissions from agriculture is even higher, e.g., it was 16%...

Rice: agricultural biotechnology © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

The biotechnology approach for methane mitigation technology involves identification of rice cultivars which emit less methane. It also involves the tailoring of plants which translocate less...

Rice: chemical fertiliser amendment © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Emissions of GHGs are affected by the amounts and types of fertilisers applied, so judicious choice of fertiliser application rates and fertiliser types can reduce emissions. Rice cultivation is...

Rice: direct seeding © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Pre-germinated seeds or seedlings are directly planted in soil or broadcast in flooded field under this technology. Rice cultivation is responsible for 10% of GHG emissions from agriculture. In...

Rice: electron acceptors © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Addition of electron acceptors, such as ferrihydrite, to paddy fields can stimulate microbial populations that compete with and slow the activity of methanogens, thereby reducing emissions of...

Rice: fertiliser, manure and straw management © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Fertiliser and manure management in rice fields are important methane mitigation technologies. The fertiliser management mitigation option includes changes in: fertiliser types; fertiliser...

Rice: mid-season drainage © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Mid-season drainage involves the removal of surface flood water from the rice crop for about seven days towards the end of tillering. The duration of the dry period must be long enough for rice...
