Chinese Scientists visit Hawaii Livestock Facilities

On September 29, 2003, Carl Evensen, along with Michael Duponte, Glen Fukumoto and Milton Yamasaki, hosted a group from the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and the State Environmental Protection Administration. Dr. Mike O'Neill, the CSREES Water Quality program leader, requested the visit for the group, who were accompanied by Dr. Lin Xin, Deputy General Manager for China Green Enterprise Limited, and by Mr. Tim Smith, Director for the London-based firm, Environmental Resources Management. Their goal is to develop a comprehensive plan and policy for rural Non-Point Source Pollution control in the Peoples Republic of China. The Chinese government is concentrating initially on livestock waste and were in Hawaii to observe management practices that could have potential for use in China.
