Next Steps for Poultry Litter Injection Technology Development 

With support from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the USDA Conservation Innovation Grant Program, and the Maryland Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bay Trust Fund, a regional collaborative effort, the Chesapeake Bay Subsurface Application of Manure (SAM) Initiative, has been working to develop poultry litter injection technologies for use on farms in the region. The project team includes agronomists and engineers from University of Delaware, University of Kentucky, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Pennsylvania State University, USDA-Agricultural Research Service laboratories in Pennsylvania and Arkansas, Virginia Tech, Cornell University, and Oklahoma State University, as well as NGO's such as Sustainable Chesapeake and the Sassafras River Association.

The project team invites stakeholders interested in poultry litter land application to participate in this event to: 1) learn about work to date; and 2) offer feedback to the team on next steps needed to bring poultry litter injection technologies to farms in the region.
