Cattle manure deposited in pastures is an important source of nitrous oxide (N2O–N) and methane (CH4) emissions. Environmental conditions and soil characteristics affect emissions of these two gases, and therefore, it is important to conduct studies in local conditions to generate emission factors to improve greenhouse gas (GHG) estimates, as well as to identify mitigation strategies.
