The cost of reducing emissions of greenhouse gases from agriculture

Researchers have studied the advantages of reducing greenhouse gases in croplands of a region in Spain. Results will allow researchers to make progress in the regional knowledge to reduce costs and emissions that could be achieved with slight changes in crop and soil management. These results can be extended to other scenarios with similar conditions to the study case.

The study, which was carried out in Aragón (Spain), provides regional information about the links between climate change mitigation and economics of sustainable agricultural management.

Results show that soil management practices can be attractive from an economic point of view for the Mediterranean farmers and at the same time achieving significant reductions of greenhouse gases emissions.
