4R Nutrient Stewardship to reduce nitrous oxide emission

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has officially endorsed NERP as a climate-smart agricultural practice.

Implementing Nitrous Oxide Emission Reduction Protocol (NERP) using 4R Nutrient Stewardship is a climate-smart agricultural practice that reduces nitrous oxide (N20) emissions for farmers. Lowering N20 emissions from plant production is a significant way for governments, industry and regulators to meet their shared goal of lowering agriculture’s global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.


Because of its simple, sustainable, cost-effective approach to managing soil emissions, the Protocol can be applied on farms of all sizes. Its practical combination of precision farming and a 4R Nutrient Stewardship (Right Source @ Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place®) plan make it ideal for any type of farm in any geography.
