MADISON, Wis. — A group representing farmers, environmental advocates and scientists will hold a public meeting to talk about how to handle hazardous manure emissions.

The Agricultural Waste Best Management Practices Advisory Group is developing recommendations to mitigate potentially dangerous hydrogen sulfide and ammonia emissions from manure.

The recommendations are expected to be completed by the end of the year. The state Department of Natural Resources will then incorporate them into rules.

The meeting is set for April 7 at the DNR’s Madison headquarters.
