The Nitrous Oxide Emission Reduction Protocol: A Canadian Case Study

The Nitrous Oxide Emission Reduction Protocol (NERP) is a science-based protocol for improving nitrogen management in cropping systems and estimating the nitrous oxide (N2O) reduction associated with better nitrogen management. The NERP is a robust protocol designed to meet international standards for estimation and verification of carbon offsets. The concept and design of the NERP is simple and driven by data that producers are either already collecting or are interested in collecting to improve their overall farm management system.
