Abstract

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a greenhouse gas emitted from the natural ecosystem (10 Tg year−1 globally) and anthropogenic sources (5.7 Tg year−1). Agriculture, which comprises about 68% of total anthropogenic N2O emissions (Schlesinger, 1997), is the most important source of global N2O emissions.
