Sustainable Farming

A collaboration with Dr. Gordon Johnson; fruit and vegetable specialist at the Carvel Center, University of Delaware extension office. This three-year project has two years of data using compost as a soil supplement to stimulate more crop yield. The parties will seek a federal grant to bring Fruit and vegetable farmers to volunteer their land as testing ground for testing. The triplicate testing will compare inorganic fertilizer, and well as poultry litter with organic compost to show the difference in crop yield.

REPLENISH stimulates the development of practical business models that build on the creative recovery and reuse of Delaware’s rich renewable resources, especially agriculture and waste by-products. Currently, diversion of organic materials is limited due to changes at two major compost facilities in our state.
