What percentage of carbon emissions are from agricultural practices?

    Since the 1950s and the rise of industrial agriculture, emissions have climbed higher than they ever have, and farming has something to due with it. Most research suggests around one-eighth, or 12.5 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions come from agricultural processes. However, the same research suggests that 40 percent of Methane emissions come from farming, as does nearly two-thirds of all the US’s Nitrous Oxide pollution; this is a direct result of the overuse of pesticides and fertilizers in modern industrial agriculture.
