Overview

This activity will look into Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from soils in Kenya. In paired experiments with at least three replicates per plot (where one soil receives biochalar amendments and the adjacent soil does not) Nitrous oxide, methane and carbon dioxide fluxes will be measured. These experiments will be done on two soils with widely differing chemical and physical properties (i.e clay content and SOM) to study the influence of soil characteristics on the emission of GHGs.

Among other things, this project will engage in a study to address the resource and technology constraints of the region and further provide guidance on on-farm measurements, surveys, model development with a special focus on analyzing the cultural and institutional setting for acceptance of the stoves by the farmer population.
