Effect of organic fertilizer on the greenhouse gas emission, including carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), produced from paddy field farming in Narsingh-Sunsari of Nepal.

Abstract: This research analyzed the effect of organic fertilizer on the greenhouse gas emission, including carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) that result from paddy field farming. Basmati-1 rice varieties were planted in Rice Research Center, Narsingh VDC Ward No: 3; Sunsari, District of Nepal. The paddy was divided into 4 plots, as follows: 1) control plots without added fertilizer, 2) plots with the addition of organic fertilizer (cow manure), 3) plots with the addition of organic fertilizer pellets and 4) plots with the addition of chemical fertilizers. The results showed that the carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide emission rates in the chemical fertilizer plot were the highest at 534.11, 1.79 and 1.21 mg/m2/day, respectively. The second highest levels were with the addition of manure at 377.35, 1.35 and 0.88 mg/m2/day, respectively. To help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from rice farming, it is recommended that organic fertilizer be utilized instead of chemical fertilizer, a practice that will also benefit the health of the farmers.
