National Agricultural Manure Management Program – Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Options For Intensive Livestock Industries
The papers published in this Reearch Front comprise research outcomes from the National Agricultural Manure Management Program (NAMMP). This program was developed by a consortium of rural research and development corporations who recognised similar knowledge gaps in manure management systems across Australian intensive livestock production. These gaps included gathering information on the amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from different livestock and manure management systems, together with the sources and causes of GHG emissions in the different systems. The NAMMP consortium proved successful for both researchers and industry and is a model that should be considered for any future cross-sectoral programs.
