Reducing NZ's agricultural GHGs: Methane Inhibitors

This publication provides an overview of how we may be able to use compounds that suppress an animal's methanogen population effectively without causing unwanted side effects in their health, welfare or production. It covers some of the commonly asked questions regarding sources of methane, enteric methane formation, the role of methanogens, what the NZAGRC and PGgRc research programme on methane inhibitors is investigating and, importantly, the timeline for an inhibitor's commercial availability.
