Mike Barton
A first-of-its-kind program set up four years ago around New Zealand's Lake Taupo puts a mandatory cap on agricultural nitrogen emissions. The program is targeting a 20% reduction in the amount of nitrogen leaching into the lake by 2018, through farmland conversion and nitrogen discharge trading.

How are farmers adjusting? Mike Barton, a beef farmer and trustee of the group involved in the implementation of the program, will share his thoughts.

Mike's talk is part of ASI's Nitrogen Speaker Series.
