Greenhouse emissions shock from agriculture

Agricultural emissions of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O) may be almost six times greater than previously thought, according to research for the Ministry of Agriculture (MAFF). The finding will make the UK's proposal for future cuts in greenhouse gas emissions more difficult to achieve. The study also suggests that changes in agricultural policy will deliver smaller than projected cuts in emissions of N2O and another greenhouse gas, methane.
