Summary/Abstract: Agriculture is the main emitter of greenhouse gases other than CO2 . Therefore in the coming years also this sector is planned to be included in the effort of reducing GHG emissions. This paper is aimed at presenting the scale and specificity of GHG emissions in the EU agriculture and at assessing which mechanism of reduction of GHG emissions would be the best suited to agriculture taking into account its specific features. The study is based on meta-analysis of the results of a number of studies related to reduction of GHG emissions. The results show that the European Trading System applied to other sectors seems not to be a suitable solution for the whole EU agriculture. The best solution would be to apply a set of several measures adjusted to the size and character of GHG emissions of a given farm.
