Crops are a significant source of GHG emissions and one area in which new techniques especially can help farms reduce their carbon footprints and benefit their bottom line.  The most significant GHG emission from arable cropping in the UK is associated with the use of artificial nitrogen fertilisers.  The other significant operation is cultivations (frequency, intensity and depth) and the effect that has on Soil Organic Matter and consequent GHG emissions.
