Abstract :

The Earth's atmosphere poses challenges for many organisms. After the industrial era anthropogenic gases have dangerously increased. The agricultural revolution also raised greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere. N2O emissions from agriculture reached 328 ppb in 2015 and continued to rise each year. As a potent greenhouse gas, it creates climate change challenges. The application of fertilizers and soil properties caused N2O gas emissions. Soil parameters like water content, carbon and nitrogen content, pH, texture (sand, silt and clay percentages), bulk density, crops, climate and management practices all contribute to N2O emissions. This study covered field experiments in Asia and helped locate factors causing N2O gas emissions. Factors that cause more emissions can result in strategies and policies to fight N2O gas emissions for sustainability in the environment and agriculture.
