Nitrous Oxide Emissions in Inland Pacific Northwest Cropping Systems

Georgine Yorgey, Assoc. in Research

Agriculture is the main source of human-produced nitrous oxide, a potent greenhouse gas. Join Georgine Yorgey, Associate in Research at WSU’s Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources (CSANR) as she provides an overview of nitrous oxide emissions in cropland agriculture and summarizes existing measurements specific to our region. A previous webinar (accessible here) provided a foundation on nitrogen cycling and losses in agricultural systems. A future webinar next month will focus on mitigation through improved nitrogen management strategies. These webinars are co-produced by the Regional Approaches to Climate Change for Pacific Northwest Agriculture Project, (REACCH) and WSU’s Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources (CSANR).

Participate in this webinar if you want to learn about nitrous oxide emissions in Pacific Northwest agricultural cropping systems.
