This methodology quantifies GHG emission reductions from improving agricultural land management practices in rice cultivation. Flooded rice fields are a key source of atmospheric methane. The methodology proposes an approach to reduce methane emissions from rice cultivation without a significant reduction in rice production by minimizing the duration and frequency of flooding and altering some other aspects of rice cultivation practices. The methodology uses the biogeochemical process model DNDC to quantify N2O and CH4 emissions under the baseline and project scenarios.
