Nitrogen Management Project Protocol

The Climate Action Reserve has developed an agriculture sector Nitrogen Management Project Protocol to provide guidance on how to quantify, monitor, and verify greenhouse gas emission reductions from improving nitrogen use efficiency in crop production. The protocol was first adopted by the Reserve Board in June 2012.

Protocol Revisions

The Nitrogen Management Project Protocol is currently undergoing a policy revision to Version 2.0. The Reserve has released a Request for Proposals to assist in the development of new quantification methodologies for the protocol. A stakeholder Statement of Interest form is also available for those interested in participating in the technical workgroup as part of the revision process. More details on the protocol revision, RFP, and workgroup involvement are available via the link below.
