Permalink USDA Greenhouse Gas Report Quantifies Impact of Land Management and Conservation

USDA logoUSDA has released a report that provides uniform scientific methods for quantifying the changes in greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and carbon storage from various land management and conservation activities. The report, titled Quantifying Greenhouse Gas Fluxes in Agriculture and Forestry: Methods for Entity-Scale Inventory, will help USDA evaluate current and future greenhouse gas conservation programs, as well as develop new tools and update existing ones to help farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners participate in emerging carbon markets. The report outlines science-based methods for quantifying changes in GHG emissions and carbon storage at the local farm, ranch, or forest operation. Current USDA carbon tools, such as USDA's COMET-Farm, are being updated to incorporate the new methods. The report is the work of 38 experts across academia, USDA and the federal government. Reviewers considered scientific rigor, transparency, completeness, accuracy, and cost effectiveness, as well as consistency and comparability with other Federal GHG inventory efforts.
