Abstract:

Rice is an unavoidable diet of most of the human beings and it is grown all over the world. But the production of rice contributes a great portion of methane emissions on annual basis. The methane which is produced contributes to climate change. Not only had the production of rice crop but also different agricultural processes contribute to the climate change. The sources of methane emission from the agriculture are wetland, termites, vegetation, ruminants, manure, and natural gas etc. In this review we present the different types of methane emission from agriculture, their consequences and mitigations.
