Greenhouse effect is a very significant issue for the Australian agricultural and land management sector. At present, the greenhouse gas emissions from the Australian agriculture represent approximately 16% of Australia’s total national emissions. This paper discusses and reviews the research and key issues that need to be addressed to facilitate effective greenhouse action in Australian agriculture. It is found that all the current emission estimation tools contain no economic or mitigation components. Little is also known about the costs of best management practices to reduce agricultural emissions or enhance greenhouse sinks. Some initial research to address this gap is outlined.
