Today’s agricultural industry produces large amounts of greenhouse gases (GHG) from the combustion of fossil fuels during the production activities, for example tractor use and grain drying. Moreover, arable soils emit an important part of the global antropogenic GHG emissions in the form of nitrous oxide (N2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2). The aim of this study is to assess the impact on GHG emissions from an organic, arable farm that changes from a fossil fuel-based...
