Wet paddy plantation is one of the major natural sources of methane. Methane is one of a major greenhouse gas which contributes to the global warming. The strength of methane from paddy field is still not totally certain of. With the increase of the world population hence increase the need for more quality food, the area for rice cultivator keep on increasing. The relationship of the increase of methane emission can be associated with the increase in rice production. This study discuss on the fluxes of the greenhouse gas from wet paddy plantation as well as the factors that effects its emissions. This is done through reviewing articles as well as relevant journals or publications related to this study. Many factors affect the methane emissions from this paddy field which are organic amendments, the rice cultivators, the type of practice use culturally, the temperatures of the paddy field, the type of fertilizer that is being used as well as the type of rice that is being plant.
