Pennsylvania′s Nutrient Trading Program is a voluntary program that can be used by point and non-point sources that exceed their environmental obligation to generate credits that may be traded to those seeking nutrient reduction credits.

NutrientNet has two components:

Trading Marketplace: For trading nutrient credits.
Calculation Tools: For calculating credits generated by agricultural management practices and activities.
