The aim of the research reported here was to assess regional greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction potential due to changing rotations at farm-scale. Rotation data generated for the research reported In Legume Futures report 4.2 from Task 4.2 were used, complemented with nitrous-oxide (N2O) emissions calculations. This research assessed the GHG abatement cost by using a bottom-up approach, assuming that the farmers are minimizing the abatement cost. Results show aggregated “win-win” abatement potential in the five NUTS2 regions of 11% to 16% of the baseline soil N2O emissions from arable areas. The total dry matter (DM) production is increases, while the area under cereal production is decreases at this level of GHG abatement.
