Vegetative Buffers Demo Days

By using native plants, Delmarva poultry growers can:

● capture dust
● shade chicken houses
● deter Canada geese
● absorb excess nutrients before they reach local waterways
● reduce maintenance costs & time

We are inviting poultry growers out to see vegetative BMPs (best management practices) installed on two independent growers’ properties. There will be two opportunities for poultry growers to come see what they can do to save time and money while supporting pollinators.

Nutrient management credits available.
Tasty lunch provided.
Event held rain or shine.
