Abstract

Climate change concerns have increased over recent years and the issue linked to carbon reduction is a worldwide global challenge, thus representing the objective of several scientists, producers, policy makers as well as consumers. A large strand of recent literature has shown the role of crops in preventing carbon dioxide emission as a consequent immobilization by vegetable biomass. In this direction the methods to assess the linkage between carbon dioxide capture and crops production all over the agricultural supply chain have experienced several applications. In order to better contextualize the existing lines of research about the analysis of CO2 captured by crops and biomass plantation, this paper analyzes the most relevant scientific contribute on different estimation methods used in such studies. In particular this paper presents an overview of the main analytical approaches adopted in analysing the role of agricultural activities in reducing carbon emissions that have been developed so far in terms of economic, social and environmental perspectives. KEYWORDS:carbon emission reduction, agricultural sustainability, sustainable cultivation, bioenergy crops, estimation methods.
