This report presents the methodology and data for calculating the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, nitrogen and phosphate leached to water, and phosphate leftover in the soil, related to the cultivation of crops. The GHG emissions include dinitrogen monoxide, ammonia, nitrogen oxides, and carbon dioxide.
The emissions, leaches, and leftovers are calculated using a model described by the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC). Following the calculations are a summary where the inputs and the outputs of the model are outlined.
