Nitrous Oxide Emission Reductions (NERP) Aggregation Project Pool 5
The opportunity for generating direct and indirect emission reduction from the project is related to the implementation of a 4R Consistent N Stewardship Plan implemented at a basic, intermediate or advanced level of performance, relative to baseline conditions.
Application of nitrogen (from manure, biological fixation, fertilizer, etc.) is an important component of agricultural production. Such applications, however, can lead to emissions of N2O. Beneficial practices for nitrogen management, which synchronize the availability of nitrogen (N) with the requirements of the crop, minimize the emissions of N2O per unit of crop production.
The Protocol quantifies carbon offsets from projects which implement BMPs in the context of a comprehensive 4-R (Right Source, Right Rate, Right Time and Right PlaceTM) nitrogen stewardship plan (hereinafter called the 4-R plan) for their farms. The implementation of a 4-R plan, including the BMPs specified in the 4-R plan, reduces the N2O emitted per kg of crop grown.
Emissions reductions are compared using a functionally equivalent unit of emission reductions per kilogram of crop produced.
Each of the participating sections of land has been in operation for a minimum of three years prior to the implementation of the Project. Prior to the implementation of the Project, a 4R Consistent Nutrient Stewardship Plan according to the NERP Protocol, had not been exercised for the sections of land, and associated crops aggregated under this project.
