American Carbon Registry: Reduced Use of Nitrogen Fertilizer on Agricultural Crops Methodology

Sadie S

The American Carbon Registry’s Methodology for Quantifying Nitrous Oxide (N2O) Emissions Reductions from Reduced Use of Nitrogen Fertilizer on Agricultural Crops outlines requirements for quantifying GHG emission reductions by reducing the amount of nitrogen used to fertilize crops. The methodology was jointly developed by Michigan State University (MSU) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). This methodology is applicable to the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector, and is specific to Agricultural Land Management (ALM) project activities. The scope of this methodology is limited to on-farm reductions in N fertilizer rate associated with the management of  fertilizers that reduce net N2O emissions from cropping systems.
