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 not currently undergoing revision. However, the Climate Action Reserve is currently proposing revisions to the Minimum Data Standard, which originally appeared as Appendix D of the Nitrogen Management Project Protocol (NMPP), in both versions 1.0 and 1.1. The public comment period for the Minimum Data Standard closed on January 24, 2014.
