Reducing methane (CH$_{4}$) emission from paddy rice production is an important target for many Asian countries in order to comply with their climate policy commitments. National greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory approaches like the Tier-2 approach of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are useful to assess country-scale emissions from the agricultural sector. In paddy rice, alternate wetting and drying (AWD) is a promising and well-studied water management technique which, as shown in experimental studies, can effectively reduce CH$_{4}$) emissions. However, so far little is known about GHG emission rates under AWD when the technique is fully controlled by farmers. This study assesses CH$_{4}$) and nitrous oxide (N$_{2}$)O) fluxes under continuous flooded (CF) and AWD treatments for seven subsequent seasons on farmers’ fields in a pumped irrigation system in Central Luzon, Philippines. Under AWD management, CH$_{4}$) emissions were substantially reduced (73% in dry season (DS), 21% in wet season (WS)). In all treatments, CH$_{4}$) is the major contributor to the total GHG emission and is, thus, identified as the driving force to the global warming potential (GWP). ... mehr
