Livestock management: feed optimisation © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

The principle of nutrition regulation technology to reduce methane emissions is: to optimise the concentrate to forage ratio in diet by controlling the crude fiber content of the diet or the...

Livestock management: genetically modified rumen bacteria © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

To optimise the synthetic or metabolic pathway of micro-organisms related to methane synthesis by employing modern molecular biotechnology to obtain genetically modified microorganisms. Then the...

Livestock management: straw ammoniation and silage © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Straw ammoniation is a process by which low-value forage such as corn stalks, rice straw, wheat straw, and straw of other crops is ammoniated. Adding liquid ammonia, urea, or ammonium bicarbonate...

Manure management practices © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Agricultural lands (lands used for agricultural production, consisting of cropland, managed grassland and permanent crops including agro-forestry and bio-energy crops) occupy about 40-...

Micro-algae for mitigating carbon dioxide © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Micro-algae are a group of unicellular or simple multicellular fast growing photosynthetic microorganisms that can conserve CO2 efficiently from different sources, including the atmosphere,...

Nutrient management: mycorrhiza © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Mycorrhiza assist plants in obtaining soil nutrients. Therefore, any resulting stimulations in plant growth provide additional plant residue, which in turn can lead to increased carbon storage in...

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%...
