USDA Greenhouse Gas Methods Report

The USDA has officially released a report that provides scientific methods for quantifying the changes in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and carbon storage from various land management and conservation activities in the USA.

The report, ‘Quantifying Greenhouse Gas Fluxes in Agriculture and Forestry: Methods for Entity-Scale Inventory,’ will help USDA evaluate current and future GHG conservation programs, as well as develop new tools and update existing ones to help farmers, ranchers and forest landowners participate in emerging carbon markets.
