The evaluation of greenhouse gas flux from agricultural soils under a sprinkler irrigation system.
Authors: Lloyd, K., C. Madramootoo
Description: Evaluation of greenhouse gases from agricultural soils has become increasingly important over the past decades with the need to make agriculture more sustainable. These gases are by-products of agricultural practices, organic matter decomposition, weather, type of crop and soil. It is important to understand the interactions of various agricultural management practices and GHG emissions. The site selected for this study is located in Sherrington, Quebec, where vegetable crops are grown, under sprinkler irrigation with surface drainage. Greenhouse gas measurements were collected over the course of the growing seasons of 2012
