An emergency order approved by members of the Delaware Nutrient Management Commission will allow for a 180-day extension of properly staged poultry litter in state fields. The order took effect on November 1.

This follows last spring’s order by the Delaware Department of Agriculture to restrict the movement and application of poultry litter in two counties to control the spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). The ability to stage litter in preparation for spring application will help farmers who faced storage limitations while still reducing litter movement when HPAI risk is anticipated to be greatest.
