SAMPLES addresses the dearth of reliable information about greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture in tropical countries. SAMPLES scientists work with developing countries to improve data on agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and mitigation potentials.
Our network of research sites stretch across the globe.

Book and videos explain how to measure soil carbon, greenhouse gas emissions and analyze mitigation options in smallholder farming
Guidelines for measurement of agricultural emissions and mitigation potential may fill large gap in comparable data from smallholder farms in developing countries. Data on greenhouse gas …read more
Climate-based suitability assessment for alternate wetting and drying water management in the Philippines: a novel approach for mapping methane mitigation potential in rice production
The ‘alternate wetting and drying’ (AWD) technology for rice is a water-saving technology with a high greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation potential. The Philippine government attempts …read more
Mitigating CH4 and N2O emissions from intensive rice production systems in northern Vietnam: Efficiency of drainage patterns in combination with rice residue incorporation
Greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation strategies are often constrained by rice farmers’ preferences, therefore an assessment of mitigation strategies taking farmers’ constraints into consideration, are important …read more
Increasing agricultural production to meet the growing demand for food whilst reducing agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is the major challenge under the changing climate. …read more
