Kader, M.A., Furhan, S., Haque, M.E. and Jahiruddin, M. (2014) Effects of conservation agriculture and nitrogen fertilization on carbon footprint in the wheat-mungbean-rice cropping system.

Recent trends towards mechanization on small farms create an opportunity to develop conservation agriculture in Bangladesh. However, a range of soil processes under conservation agriculture in rice-based cropping systems will differ from those in dry land cropping systems. The emission of greenhouse gases for example may favour methane under flooded conditions rather than carbon dioxide. The effect of nitrous oxide emission under conservation agriculture in rice-based systems also needs to be determined. Thus, a study was undertaken to determine whether minimum tillage by strip tillage, different levels of N fertilizer and residue management altered the carbon footprint (CF) of wheat and mungbean and whether unpuddled transplanting affected CF of monsoonal rice relative to puddled soils.
