DPI Works Hard on Proposed Maryland Manure Limitation Regulation
Maryland Department of Agriculture Withdraws Proposal
The last few months have been especially busy for DPI, our members, and others in the agricultural community regarding the proposed Maryland Department of Agriculture Phosphorus Management Tool regulation. Thankfully, our voices have been heard and the Maryland Department of Agriculture on November 15 announced it was withdrawing the proposed regulation and would begin work on drafting what we hope is a more acceptable proposal.
