The Delmarva Land & Litter Collaborative

The Delmarva Land & Litter Collaborative

Building on previous work completed through the Chesapeake Bay Manure Management Project, in the early 2010s the Delmarva Land and Litter Project collected a “kitchen cabinet” Work Group composed of a diverse cross section of grain growers, poultry producers and integrators, academic experts, extension agents, along with conservation and business partners. They continue to work together to assess progress in managing nutrient pollution associated with the storage, transport and land application of poultry litter on the Delmarva Peninsula.

A forum for diverse partners
