National Adaptation and Mitigation Initiative (NAMI) at Longerenong

Nitrous Oxide is more than 300 times more powerful as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. Australian agriculture contributes a significant proportion of Australia's nitrous oxide emissions, and most of these are from soils.

This project seeks to investigate options for managing emissions from soils

  • What options are available to Australian dryland farmers?
  • To what extent can farmers reduce their farm emissions?
This project is looking at relevant options for each of the study regions - raised beds, nitrification inhibitors and fertiliser management in the high rainfall zone, and Nitrogen source and tillage technique in the medium rainfall zone, to identify which strategies may be of use to farmers to adapt to, and mitigate against, increasing climate variability.
