Management of the National Agricultural Manure Management Program (NAMMP) aims to manage, direct and coordinate the successful project outcomes that deliver GHG mitigation options across the intensive livestock (IL) industries that will lead to the development of CFI methodologies. For this to occur effectively and efficiently the Manure Management Research Consortium was formed.
