The California Department of Food and Agriculture's (CDFA) 2020 Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP) Demonstration Projects is part of the Alternative Manure Management Program. This program has been developed in response to the recommendations of the Subgroup #1: Fostering Markets for Non-Digester Projects of the SB 1383 Dairy and Livestock Working Group. The AMMP Demonstration Projects – Advancing Practices Farmer-to-Farmer program (abbreviated as AMMP Demo - APFF) will fund projects that demonstrate through farmer-to-farmer outreach, the manure management practices that reduce methane emissions and maximize environmental cobenefits on California dairy and livestock operations. Projects may also develop educational materials, including web sites or other educational delivery mechanisms that provide accurate, up-to-date and independently verified information about effective practices and technologies that reduce methane from dairy and livestock manure management and/or assist producers in selecting management practices appropriate for their dairy or livestock operation(s).
AMMP Demo - APFF is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions,
strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment — particularly in disadvantaged communities.
