Biogeochemist Prof William Horwath explains the impact that modern
agriculture has on greenhouse gas emissions from the soil. Presented by Dr

*"Agriculture is responsible for two-thirds of the nitrous oxide emissions
across the planet, and nitrous oxide contributes close to 20 per cent or so
of the total global warming potential of [greenhouse] gases combined."
