Soil carbon dioxide emissions, and soil carbon stocks in general, have recently gained much scientific attention due to their special relevance to climate change. Through the use of appropriate management techniques, soil carbon loss can be reduced and carbon sequestration can be increased in agricultural soils, while also improving soil quality. The development of such techniques requires a better understanding of soil respiration and its responses to changes in biotic and abiotic factors, using state-of-theart methods with a sound scientific background.The laboratory carbon dioxide emission measurement method was tested on soil samples collected in a 19-year-old peach orchard near Vac, Hungary. The soil was a Ramann brown forest soil (Mollic-Cambisol; WRB, 2006) developed on sandy loam. Two management techniques have been consistently applied on the 6.5 m wide rows in the orchard: grass-covered undisturbed rows (Gy) alternate with rows that are disked (T) every second or third week, depending on the weather. The main physical, chemical and biological characteristics of the soil were published earlier (T Source
