The variability of field emissions is critical to assessing the environmental impacts of vegetables: A Benin case-study

Perrin A., Basset-Mens C., Huat J., Gabrielle B., 2017. The variability of field emissions is critical to assessing the environmental impacts of vegetables: A Benin case-study. Journal of Cleaner Production, 153, 104-113. http://dx.doi.org/doi:10.1016/j.jclepro.2017.03.159

 

 

Highlights

  • Global warming potential of urban garden tomato is 10 times higher than the impact of European tomato under cold greenhouse.
  • High ecotoxicity potential results from excessive use of cypermethrin, an active substance against insects
  • Excessive nitrogen rates may increase eutrophication and climate change potentials 3-fold without noticeable yield gain
  • Nitrogen inputs from soil mineralization leads to significant nitrogen emissions even for extensive nitrogen management.
