Errata and Clarifications

Erratum to VM0022 Quantifying N2O Emissions Reductions in Agricultural Crops through Nitrogen Fertilizer Rate Reduction, v1.1

This methodology quantifies reductions of nitrous oxide from cropping systems. The methodology applies to projects in the United States that optimize nitrogen fertilizer through the use of verifiable best management practices, specific to the crop, soil and environmental conditions of the project. The methodology utilizes an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) default emission factor or an empirically derived, regional emission factor to calculate nitrous oxide emission reductions directly associated with reducing the application rate of inorganic and organic fertilizers.
