Quantification protocol for agricultural nitrous oxide emissions reductions (version 1.0)

This item has been replaced by a more recent resource or the content may be otherwise out of date. It is provided for informational and research purposes.
Description

The scope of this protocol is limited to on-farm reductions of emissions from nitrogen sources and fuel use associated with the management of fertilizer, manure and crop residues for each annual or perennial crop type grown. Lands grazed by animals are excluded from this protocol as are greenhouse gas reductions associated with carbon sequestration in the soil and the off-site emission reductions affected by the manufacture and distribution of nitrogen fertilizers. The exclusion of off-site reductions of fertilizer manufacturing increases conservativeness in emission reduction calculations and limits the scope of quantification to those sources, sinks and/or reservoirs for which data are readily available.
