Program Description
The Agricultural Experiment Station is participating with University counterparts in sustainable agriculture research on the use of chicken manure for crop production. Specifically, the Poultry manure produced from Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia (DELMARVA) poultry industries is applied on farmland along with chemical fertilizer for crop production. The chicken manure is cleaned, sterilized, and palletized for easy handling and
movement in crop and vegetable production. Residents of Washington, DC and small rural farmers grow vegetables backyards and small farm respectively, and could potentially use this material as a soil amendment for the land. This experiment was designed to determine the effectiveness of palletized poultry manure as a soil amendment in vegetable production and its potential effect on DC water resources.
