Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry 2006.

Note: Agriculture emission projections are provided for 2010 only, the mid-point of the years 2008-2012. For the net position calculation this was multiplied by five as 2010 is considered representative of average annual emissions between 2008 and 2012. The projections from 2004 to 2010 were interpolated for presentational purposes only.

Text description of figure

Chart 8 shows the historic trend in greenhouse gas emissions from the National Inventory report (submitted 2006) for the years 1990 to 2004 for the agriculture sector, and projected agricultural emissions to 2010. Emissions from agriculture in 2010 under the most likely scenario are projected to be 40.0 million tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent with a high emissions scenario of 44.0 million tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent and a low emissions scenario of 36.0 million tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent.
