Click here to see the Poultry Litter – Lessons from the Delmarva and the Ohio Valley panel discussion. Recorded at the Owensboro Ag Expo, this panel of a Delmarva-area (Delmarva = Delaware, Maryland and Virginia) producer of poultry litter, a Delmarva-area custom hauler and applicator of poultry litter and three farmers in Kentucky who use this nutrient-rich resource talk about its regulations and benefits.

Lessons from the Delmarva are particularly important because of the strict and sometimes burdensome regulations and documentation used in that area because of concerns about pollution in the Chesapeake Bay.

This forum caps a two-year project co-funded by the Kentucky Soybean Board and the Kentucky Corn Growers. It is moderated by UK Economist Dr. Jordan Shockley and UK Soil Specialist Dr. Josh McGrath, who worked extensively in the Delmarva area before relocating to the University of Kentucky. Dr. Edwin Ritchey, UK Extension Soil Specialist, also contributed to the discussion.
