This study aimed to analyze the holistic amount of greenhouse gas emission of Napier Pakchong 1 grass plantation in Prachinburi Province, Thailand, in a term of carbon footprint. The carbon footprint of Napier plantation from irrigation plot and non-irrigation plot was 17.182 and 19.138 kg CO2e/ton of Napier Pakchong 1 grass, respectively. The largest contribution to the greenhouse gas emission came from the fertilizer application. The irrigation to the crop significantly increased the crop yield resulting in the reduction of greenhouse gas emission per unit weight of the crop. The suitable type and the optimal quantity of fertilizer application, as well as the most efficient irrigation system with the least environmental impact, were suggested for further study.
