Reducing nitrous oxide emissions while supporting subtropical cereal production in Oxisols
De Antoni Migliorati, Massimiliano (2015) Reducing nitrous oxide emissions while supporting subtropical cereal production in Oxisols. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.
This is the first study to investigate alternative fertilisation strategies to increase cereal production while reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the most common soil type in subtropical regions. The results of this research will contribute to define future farming practices to achieve global food security and mitigate climate change.
The study established that introducing legumes in cropping systems is the most agronomically viable and environmentally sustainable fertilisation strategy. Importantly, this strategy can be widely adopted in subtropical regions since it is economically accessible, requires little know-how transfer and technology investment, and can be profitable in both low- and high-input cropping systems.
