    The anthropogenic (human caused) increase in greenhouse gas concentrations over the past 150 years is primarily connected with the increase in CO2 emissions from fossil fuels. However, around one-third of the total human-induced warming effect is due to greenhouse gases released from agricultural and land-use changes.Intensively managed agricultural systems interfere with ecosystems and their role in the Earth’s natural biogeochemical cycling systems causing increased production of the three major greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide). The major practices blamed for this increase in gases are deforestation, rice cultivation, and pastoral agriculture.
