ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Nitrogen (N)-management protocol or guideline released by the California nonprofit group Climate Action Reserve (CAR) offering verifiable credits for reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from nitrogen fertilizers applied in farms. Issued by the California nonprofit group CAR, it says, the CAR N-management protocol has similar mechanisms as the cap and trade carbon-trading. It also notes revenue opportunities and nutrient management.
