In springtime especially, farmers are applying manure to their crop fields. While some local farm types, such as dairy, are regulated on manure use, others farm types are not.
The Whatcom Conservation District is launching a public education campaign called “Manure Matters.” It will provide information on the steps farmers must take to protect water quality in local streams, rivers and bays and cultivate a public understanding of how and why farmers recycle manure as an organic crop nutrient and soil amendment.
