Decarbonizing Rice Cultivation - An Overview - 10 Dec 2023

Methane has more than 80 times the warming power of carbon dioxide over the first 20 years it reaches the atmosphere and is a critical driver of global temperature rise. Yet, agriculture is the largest source of anthropogenic methane emissions and has contributed to an overall increase in methane in earth’s atmosphere since 2017. Rice, which is a staple in Asian diets, makes up 12% of global methane emissions and is the largest source of methane emissions in Southeast Asia.
