Climatic conditions and cultural practices in the sub-tropical and tropical high-rainfall regions in which sugarcane is grown in Australia are conducive to rapid carbon and nitrogen cycling. Previous research has identified substantial exchanges of methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) between sugarcane soils and the atmosphere. However, that research has been mostly short-term. This paper describes recent work aimed at quantifying exchanges of CH4 and N2O from fertilised sugarcane soils over...[Show more]
