Delmarva Poultry Growers – Please Provide Your Input About a New Study

Poultry growers in DE, MD, and VA should have received an invitation to participate in a survey about poultry litter being conducted by the University of Delaware, University of Maryland, and Virginia Tech. Thank you to everyone who has completed the questionnaire so far.

Next week we are sending our final mailing, which will include a paper version of the questionnaire and a postage paid return envelope. We value your input and hope you will participate by filling out and returning your questionnaire.

Results from this study will be used to benefit farmers and to help protect natural resources by improving the distribution of poultry litter across the Delmarva and throughout grain producing regions of Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

Growers who complete the survey by June 30, 2020 are eligible to enter a drawing for a $50 Visa gift card (10 available) or a $100 gift card (5 available). Additionally, Delaware and Maryland poultry growers can receive one nutrient management continuing education unit (CEU) for completing this survey.

Your response is extremely important to us. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact University of Delaware researcher Leah Palm-Forster (302-831-1325;
