NERP minimizes these N2O emission pathways by managing on-farm applied nitrogen sources through the implementation of the best management practices described by the 4R Plan. This 4R Plan is a risk-based approach, informed by over 40 years of peer-reviewed research on the effect specific management practices have on the biological processes that lead to nitrogen losses in North American cropping systems. The 4R Plan is designed to address the risk of nitrogen losses by promoting comprehensive nitrogen management across the 4Rs:
The greater the NUE increase, the more offsets that are generated. Furthermore, NERP can be combined with other programs such as no-till to increase the amount of carbon offsets generated.
Let Fertoz be your carbon specialist. We provide agronomic services, sustainable crop solutions, carbon credit advisory and trading. Our carbon programs can be stacked to maximize returns on your farms’ carbon offset initiatives. We currently offer NERP and Conservation Cropping (No-Till) programs, but are working to provide a host of other carbon programs in the near future including cover cropping, canola strategies, methane reductions in cattle, and sustainable fertilizer programs.
