Abstract/Summary

Annual Report to Defra (Project SCF0107). • Agricultural emissions of ammonia, methane and nitrous oxide for 2018 were spatially distributed across the UK, and maps produced. • Holding-level agricultural statistics on livestock numbers and crop areas for 2018 were not available in sufficient time for a full inventory model run. Therefore emission estimates produced for the 2018 inventory were derived by scaling the 2017 emissions based on the changes to 2018 in DA-level livestock numbers and crop areas. • Non-disclosive agricultural emission maps were produced at a grid resolution of 1 km by 1 km, using detailed agricultural census data, land cover data (Rowland et al., 2017), agricultural practice information (e.g. fertiliser application rates, stocking densities) and emission source strength data from the UK emissions inventories for agriculture 2017 (Misselbrook and Gilhespy 2020 and Brown et al. 2020). • All emission maps correspond to the totals reported by Rothamsted Research North Wyke (RResNW) for 2018.
