China : Greenhouse gas control in the agricultural sector (English)

This report concerns the agriculturally related emissions of two greenhouse gases, methane and nitrous oxide, in the People's Republic of China. Rice paddies, domesticated animals and their waste, and crop residue burning are the sources of methane considered, while fertilizer applications and crop residue burning are considered as sources of nitrous oxide. The report is presented in three sections. The first section estimates China's emissions of methane and nitrous oxide in 1988 and 1990 from the sources noted above. The second summarizes Chinese research aimed at reducing emissions. Finally, projections of emissions levels to the year 2020 are made.
