2011 Agricultural Inventory Advisory Panel meeting

Information about the 2011 meeting of the Agricultural Inventory Advisory Panel – an independent group of experts who meet to assess proposed improvements to the Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Inventory.


Papers considered

Nine papers were presented to the panel for consideration:

  • Nitrous oxide emissions from cultivated histosols
  • Poultry methane and nitrous oxide emissions
  • Nitrous oxide and methane emission from swine
  • Methane and nitrous oxide emissions from crops and tussock burning
  • Methane emissions and nitrogen excretion rates for New Zealand goats
  • Better estimation of national liveweight of ewes
  • Better estimation of national liveweight of beef cows
  • Review of population models within the national methane inventory
  • Reduction of nitrous oxide emissions from nitrogen fertiliser due to the use of urease inhibitors.

Outcomes

  • Papers 1 to 7 were approved and were incorporated into the 2012 submission of the Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Inventory.
  • Paper 8 was approved and changes will be incorporated in the 2013 submission of the Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Inventory once reprogramming of the inventory model is complete.
  • The discussion on paper 9 was delayed until the 2013 meeting due to new data becoming available immediately before the meeting.
