This chapter covers the main sources, processes, and factors controlling formation and emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from agricultural system, methods of their measurement in the field (static and closed chambers and micrometeorological methods), and estimation (from empirical relations and mechanistic models). It provides the details of the processes like mineralization and mobilization, nitrification, denitrification, volatilization, leaching, and runoff for nitrous oxide emission; biomass burning, tillage and soil disturbance, deforestation, draining of wetlands, uncontrolled grazing, and manufacturing fertilizers and pesticide for carbon dioxide emission; and methanogenesis of methane gas emission and its transport by diffusion, ebullition, and plant mediation along with their cycles in soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. The role of atmospheric, plant, and soil parameters and management interventions and feedback of climate change on GHG emission are also elucidated besides the potential global warming, radiative forcing, and lifetime of GHGs in the atmosphere.
