Comments must be submitted by 5 p.m. on March 1.

The California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Office of Environmental Farming and Innovation is seeking public comments on recommendations for proposed new manure management practices to be potentially included in its Alternative Manure Management Program.

Comments must be submitted via email to by 5 p.m. PT on Monday, March 1, 2021.

Proposals for new practices were accepted through a request for proposals (RFP) between July 6 and Sept. 4, 2020. There were several important requirements needed to submit a manure management practice for consideration in AMMP.  Submitted proposals were reviewed by subject matter experts within CDFA, the California Air Resources Board and the AMMP Technical Advisory Committee. Recommendations for practices for potential inclusion under AMMP are now available for public comments through March 1, 2021.

AMMP is part of California Climate Investments (CCI), a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment – particularly in disadvantaged communities.

The Cap-and-Trade program also creates a financial incentive for industries to invest in clean technologies and develop innovative ways to reduce pollution. CCI projects include affordable housing, renewable energy, public transportation, zero-emission vehicles, environmental restoration, more sustainable agriculture, recycling and much more.

At least 35% of these investments are located within and benefiting residents of disadvantaged communities, low-income communities and low-income households across California. For more information, visit the CCI website.
