Quantification protocol for agricultural nitrous oxide emission reductions. Version 2.0

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 synthetic fertilizer, manure fertilizer and crop residues. Greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions associated with carbon sequestration in the soil and off-site emission reductions affected by the manufacture and distribution of nitrogen fertilizers are excluded from the protocol.1 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.
