- ... Farm shelterbelts are used as a management tool to reduce erosion, conserve moisture, protect crops and buildings, and sequester carbon. Although carbon storage in shelterbelts has been well researched, there have been no measurements of soil trace gas exchange in shelterbelts relative to cropped fields. Our objective was to quantify, for the first time, soil CO2, CH4 and N2O fluxes from shelterbe ...

- ... Using tree shelterbelts to protect adjacent crops from the destructive effects of wind, wind-driven particles, direct sunlight, and extreme climatic conditions is a common agricultural practice. Trees and crops, however, will inevitably compete for the same water and nutrient resources, especially along their common border. This study evaluated the effects of shelterbelts on the amounts of nitrate ...
