WP6: Implications for GHG mitigation


The objective is to identify and quantify mitigation measures that can reduce nitrous oxide emissions crop residues in North European cropping systems while also contributing to storing soil carbon.

Specific objectives are:

• To identify components of cropping systems where there is a considerable potential for reducing nitrous oxide emissions

• To identify mitigation measures and quantify their effectiveness for net GHG emissions reductions (nitrous oxide and SOC storage) at field scale

• With stakeholders to assess the feasibility and scalability if selected mitigation measures and thus the potential for reducing net GHG emissions from cropping systems
