    Agricultural production methods can be modified to reduce harmful emissions and sequester carbon that might otherwise contribute to climate change. Agricultural production releases each of the three main greenhouse gases: carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. Carbon dioxide is the main focus of many GHG. Studies to quantify the impact on production of reducing or limiting inputs to agriculture have suggested that yields/hectare would decrease from 35% to 80% depending upon the crop (Smith et al.). Without a concurrent decrease in demand, the amount of land that must be utilized would increase dramatically.   AGRICULTURE - Statistical Year Book India Pattern of Land Utilisation.
