Reducing greenhouse gas emissions in dairy farming systems in the India

Author(s):

Vijay Jalamkar and Prafulla S Kumar

Abstract:

Dairy farming in India is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, primarily through methane production from enteric fermentation and manure management. This review paper synthesizes previous studies, government reports, and data analysis to examine strategies for reducing GHG emissions in Indian dairy farming systems. The paper discusses the current state of GHG emissions in the sector, evaluates mitigation techniques such as dietary modifications, improved manure management, and breeding strategies, and assesses the policy landscape supporting these initiatives. Findings suggest that a combination of technological interventions and policy measures can effectively reduce emissions, contributing to India's climate change mitigation goals.
