Efficient Nitrogen Management
Alberta gives agricultural producers new ways to benefit from helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The opportunity for generating carbon offsets with the NERP protocol arises from the reduction of nitrous oxide (N20) emissions achieved through the implementation of a 4-R Nutrient Stewardship Plan (Right source, right rate, right timing, right placement).
Other benefits of improved nitrogen stewardship include:
- Improved nitrogen efficiency, with a potential combination of yield increases and fertilizer savings
- Improved health of downstream water systems
- The establishing of farm data systems which may provide access to other emerging environmental market opportunities that require high-quality data and documentation
