Greenhouse-gas emission factors are widely used to estimate emissions arising from a defined unit of a specific activity. Such estimates are used both for international reporting to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and for a myriad of national and subnational reporting purposes. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provides a methodology for national and sub-national estimation of known greenhouse gas emissions including for each sector from which the emissions arise. The objective of this study was to develop an emission factor to estimate the direct emission from an agricultural field cultivated with Chinese cabbage during spring season in 2010-2012. An estimated emission factor of calculated over three years from field experiment accounting for cumulative emission, nitrogen fertilization rate, and background emission was (95% CI) Kg N. More extensive studies are needed to develop emission factors for other upland crops in various regions of Korea because emission is influenced by many factors including climate characteristics, soil properties agricultural practices and crop species.
