Responses: Technologies and Practices
by Zixin Lu published Apr 29, 2015 last modified Jun 10, 2016 04:07 PM
Management practices, and their underlying technologies, together with land-use decisions, have a dramatic influence on the total amount and ultimate fate of nitrogen (N) in the environment. Based on the California nitrogen mass balance (Chapter 4), nine critical areas for intervention in the nitrogen cascade were identified. This chapter reviews these critical control points and evaluates related mitigative strategies and technological options to reduce emissions of nitrogen. This chapter also evaluates the potential for synergies and trade-offs that may occur from adopting these strategies.

Responses: Policies & Institutions
by Zixin Lu published Apr 29, 2015 last modified Jun 10, 2016 04:17 PM
Because nitrogen emissions from agricultural sources are geographically dispersed, cannot be easily observed, and are difficult to precisely control, this problem presents unique challenges for effective policy design. A suite of integrated practice and policy solutions may be needed to achieve both adequate source control and mitigation of the existing N stock within reasonable time-frames. This chapter provides an overview of available policy instruments for non-point source pollution control and examines specific outcomes when these mechanisms have been implemented to control N pollution in practice. Policy characteristics are then organized into a coherent methodology for assessing candidate policies for controlling N emissions from agricultural sources in California.
