- Identification of suitable areas for aerobic rice cultivation in the humid tropics of eastern India. Mandal, D. K.; Mandal, C.; Raja, P.; Goswami, S. N. // Current Science (00113891);7/25/2010, Vol. 99 Issue 2, p227
In view of the depleting availability of water for agriculture, higher emission of nitrous oxide and methane from low land rice cultivation and their deleterious impact on global warming phenomenon, the present study stressed the need for cultivation of aerobic rice. The study focuses on...
- Pattern of methane emission and water productivity under different methods of rice crop establishment. Suryavanshi, Priyanka; Singh, Y.; Prasanna, R.; Bhatia, Arti; Shivay, Y. // Paddy & Water Environment;Jan2013, Vol. 11 Issue 1-4, p321
Methane (CH) emission and water productivity were estimated in an experiment conducted during wet (rainy) season of 2010 at the research farm of Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi, India. Treatments comprising three methods of crop establishment viz., conventional transplanting...
- The contribution of entrapped gas bubbles to the soil methane pool and their role in methane emission from rice paddy soil in free-air [CO] enrichment and soil warming experiments. Tokida, Takeshi; Cheng, Weiguo; Adachi, Minaco; Matsunami, Toshinori; Nakamura, Hirofumi; Okada, Masumi; Hasegawa, Toshihiro // Plant & Soil;Mar2013, Vol. 364 Issue 1/2, p131
Purpose: We attempted to determine the contribution of entrapped gas bubbles to the soil methane (CH) pool and their role in CH emissions in rice paddies open to the atmosphere. Methods: We buried pots with soil and rice in four treatments comprising two atmospheric CO concentrations (ambient...
- Reasons for Larger Warming Projections in the IPCC Third Assessment Report. Wigley, T. M. L.; Raper, S. C. B. // Journal of Climate;Oct2002, Vol. 15 Issue 20, p2945
Projections of future warming in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Third Assessment Report (TAR) are substantially larger than those in the Second Assessment Report (SAR). The reasons for these differences are documented and quantified. Differences are divided into differences...
- Aussies Battle BELCHES. // Current Science;9/2/2011, Vol. 97 Issue 1, p12
The article reports on the harmful effect of cow belch on the environment, after scientists revealed that it gives out 1.2 tons of methane, a greenhouse gas that is responsible for global warming.
