The level of nitrous oxide (), a long-lived greenhouse gas, in atmosphere has increased mainly due to anthropogenic sources, especially application of nitrogen fertilizers. Quantifying emission in the agricultural field is essential to develop National inventories of greenhouse gases (GHGs) emission. The objective of this study was to develop emission factor to estimate direct emission from agricultural field by measuring emissions in the red pepper cultivating field from 2010 to 2012. Emission factor of calculated from accumulated emission, nitrogen fertilization rate, and background emission was N resulted from three year experiment of the research sites. More extensive studies need to be conducted to develop emission factors for other upland crops in the various regions of Korea because emission is influenced by many factors including climate characteristics, soil properties, and agricultural practices.
