In an attempt to calculate the yield scaled carbon footprint of barley, Gan et al. (2012), calculated that nearly 26 % of the GHG emissions were contributed by farm operations. Gan et al. (2012) however, did not measure CH4 emissions. In most of the studies, tier3 emissions, particularly of fertilizer application alone, contributed from 45 to 85 % of the total yield scaled carbon footprints (Gan et al. 2011a, b, 2012), whereas Gan et al. (2011c) Gan et al. 383–0. 533 Rochette et al. (2008); Lal (2004a) Rochette et al.

Rice fields alone emit 32 to 44 Tg CH4 yr-1 (Le Mer and Roger 2001). Del Grosso et al. 2 to 7 Tg N annually in the form of N2O. Due to their high global warming Carbon Footprint Estimation 27 potential of 298, emissions of N2O, even in a small quantity, cause significant radiative forcing. Increased soil temperatures coupled with high moisture conditions during cooler months will increase N2O production in soil. Elevation in CO2 concentrations is also projected to increase N2O emissions from upland agricultural soils (Van Groeningen et al.
