Potash, as K20 Quantification of greenhouse gases from manure management: IPCC Guidelines Txt 2 columns List 2 List 3 Tier 1 emission factors (EFs) have been updated for high and low List 4 productivity systems. For major animal categories, Tier List15parameters such as enteric fermentation EFs, volatile solids and nitrogen excretion are derived based on consistent data sources. The Tier 1 method to estimate CH4 emissions from manure management has been updated for consistency with N2O emissions. Certain Tier 2 parameters have been refined. The methane conversion rate (Ym) for cattle and buffalo, varies based on animal diet and level of productivity. The methane conversion factor (MCF) for animal waste management systems are presented based on climatic regions, as opposed to annual temperatures and a simple calculation model for deriving the MCF based on monthly temperature regimes has been presented. Improved guidance has been developed for the treatment of nitrogen transfers among livestock emission source categories and transfers to agricultural soils. (Chapter 10)
