Apparently, conservation agriculture is able to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases as well as global food security. First of all, according to the definition of greenhouse gases (GHG) “The atmospheric concentrations of some greenhouse gases are being affected directly by human activities namely carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, ozone, chlorofluorocarbons and hydrofluorocarbons.
Water vapour is also a major greenhouse gas, but its concentration in the atmosphere is not influenced directly by human activities.” (Climate Change in Australia, 2015). The future human civilisation will be threatened by rising atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide and methane. Roughly, agriculture activities were worth 15% of the global greenhouse gases emission in 2008. (FAO, 2008).
Collectively, CA can reduce a certain amount of GHG emissions, CA could raise the proportion of organic bacteria up in the soil, enriching a higher capacity of water-logging than out-of-date method, addition to diminishing evaporation from both lower levels and upper levels of soil (TerAvest, Carpenter-Boggs, Thierfelder, & Reganold, 2015). The research in a town of Malawi, is called Nkhotakota, offers probably the supportive empirical analysis of the importance of soil carbon and water capacity (TerAvest, Carpenter-Boggs, Thierfelder, & Reganold, 2015). It was strongly illustrated that an evapotranspiration is highly likely occurred if soils were sandy with low soil carbon and…
