DURHAM, N.H. – Scientists from the University of New Hampshire have been awarded $700,000 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) to do a baseline study of greenhouse gas emissions at both traditional and organic dairy farms operated by UNH. The grant will also support development of extension and higher education programs that will improve the competitiveness of organic livestock and crop producers, as well as those who are adopting organic practices.

The three-year study by scientists at UNH’s Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space (EOS) and Applied Geosolutions, LLC of Durham will include field measurements of greenhouse gas emissions, including methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide, from all components of both traditional and organic dairy farming.
