|Title:||Recent methane budget estimates from Indian rice paddy fields|
|Authors:||Parashar, D C|

|Abstract:||An estimate of methane (CH4) emission budget from Indian rice paddy fields is presented based on 46 seasonal integrated methane emission data up to 1995 from 20 stations spread all over major rice growing regions representing diverse paddy ecosystems. Total annual CH4 emission from Indian paddies is estimated to be about 4.1 Tg with a range of 2.8 to 5.3 Tg, ignoring the uptake associated with upland regime of paddy cultivation areas. Mitigation of methane emission can best be achieved through proper water management practices involving drainage between various growth ages of paddy crop.|
