Effects of Livestock Compost and Soil Conditioner Application on Greenhouse Gases Emission in Paddy Soil

가축분퇴비 및 토양개량제 처리가 온난화 가스 배출에 미치는 영향

  • Published : 2005.06.30


To find out reducing way of methane emission from a paddy field monitoring on the greenhouse gases emissions were carried out in the paddy soil with livestock compost and soil conditioner. The seasonal variations of methane emission were high at 36 days and 86 days after rice transplanting, on the other hand those of nitrous oxide emission were high at 64 days after that day. Methane emission by cow compost application, pig compost application and chicken compost application were 331, 282 and 294 kg $ha^{-1}$, respectively. Otherwise, nitrous oxide emissions by cow compost application, pig compost application and chicken compost application were 1.60, 1.78 and 1.78 kg $ha^{-1}$ respectively. The total emission rate of greenhouse gases equivalent to $CO_2$ emission rate (GWP) was 7,447 kg $ha^{-1}$ in cow compost application, 6,474 kg $ha^{-1}$ in pig compost application and 6,726 kg $ha^{-1}$ in chicken compost application. Methane emission by Ca, $SiO_2$ and artificial zeolite application were 373, 264, 239 kg $ha^{-1}$, respectively. The total emission rate of greenhouse gases equivalent to $CO_2$ emission rate (GWP) was 8,295 kg $ha^{-1}$ in Ca application 5,978 kg $ha^{-1}$ in $SiO_2$ application and 5,447 kg $ha^{-1}$ in artificial zeolite application.
