amount of N applied for the accounting of N 2 O emissions from agricultural soils ( IPCC, 1997 ). Greenhouse gas emission variations found in the literature are due to a variety of factors ( Mosier et al., 1996 ; Smith et al., 2003 ) including crop, soil

. Several best management practices have been developed for reducing emissions of CO 2 ( Paustian et al., 2000 ), CH 4 ( Mosier et al., 1998 ), and N 2 O ( Snyder et al., 2007 ) from agricultural production. Other programs such as Greenhouse Gas Reduction

( Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, 2005 ). In response to the concerns over increasing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), “carbon footprints” are widely understood in the local vernacular as an indicator of global warming. Carbon footprints are expressed in units

high demand reduces the emission of greenhouse gases. To date, the amount of emitted carbon dioxide by transporting fruits and vegetables is comparable to or greater than the amount emitted during the production process ( Ohyama et al., 2008 ). In
