Abstract

Nitrous oxide emissions make up a significant part of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions. There is an urgent need to identify new approaches to the mitigation of these emissions with emerging technology. In this short review four approaches to precision managements of agricultural systems are described based on examples of work being undertaken in the UK and New Zealand. They offer the opportunity for nitrous oxide mitigation without any reduction in productivity. These approaches depend upon new sensor technology, modeling and spatial information on which to make management decisions and interventions that can both improve agricultural productivity and environmental protection.
