Overview

MPI seeks to procure two projects to deliver good practice guidelines to support and extend the work of the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA), specifically its Livestock Research Group. The projects are:
1. “Updating the Nitrous Oxide Chamber Methodology Guidelines”
2. “Updating and extending guidelines on methodologies for measuring enteric methane”

The expected outcomes at the end of these projects are:
 Project 1: Revision and extension of the existing GRA ‘Nitrous Oxide Chamber Methodology Guidelines’ (2015) to include more thorough analysis of the sources of variability associated with nitrous oxide (N2O); guidance on deciding the best flux measurement method for a given situation; guidance on backfilling missing N2O measurements; and a new chapter on N2O modelling
 Project 2: Revision and update of the existing ‘Guidelines for use of sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) tracer technique to measure enteric methane emissions from ruminants’ (2014); and development of a manual on new methodologies for measuring enteric methane.
