Summary

Agricultural practices contribute considerably to emissions of greenhouse gases. So far, knowledge on the impact of organic compared to non-organic farming on soil-derived nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4) emissions is rather limited. Meta-studies studies show, that organically managed soils emit less N2O and take up more CH4 than those under non-organic management. This in contrast of that what has been found in the laboratory with soil material from the DOK trial.
