(DPI), the nonprofit trade associa- tion working for the continued progress of Delmarva's more than $1 billion a year chicken industry, and Delmarva's five poultry com- panies, have agreed to fund two research projects valued at nearly $54,000. The first project is A Demon- stration of Sand as an Alternative Bedding in Poultry Houses and Identification of Market Options for the Litter. George Malone, ex- tension poultry specialist, Univer- sity of Delaware Department of Animal and Food Sciences, will be the principal investigator. The goal of this project is to evaluate the use of sand as an alternative bedding material for Delmarva's nearly 6,000 chicken houses. Chicken production data and en- vironmental parameters will be studied. "The poultry industry on Del- marva is highly concentrated and with a decreasing agricultural land base available for the appli- cation of litter as a crop fertilizer, this project has the potential to address such challenges," Malone said. In addition, this project will help identify areas where nutri- ents are either deficient or are be- ing supplied from other sources. The organic matter may prove to be an attractive alternative to the use of commercial fertilizers for golf courses, nurseries or home- owners. Information from this project will help poultry farmers develop nutrient management strategies to address state and fed- eral regulations regarding land- application of poultry litter. The second project is Efficient utilization of Poultry Litter in Cash Grain Rotations. Kenneth W. Staver, University of Mary- land College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Wye Research I and Education Center, will be the principal investigator. The goal of this project is to establish the rela- tionship between poultry litter ap- plications and water quality. "Strategies that minimize nutrient losses associated with poultry lit- ter will help maintain the viability of both grain and poultry produc- tion in Maryland," Stayer said. The Maryland Grain Producers Association is providing funding for this project also. In October 1997, DPI and Del- marva's five poultry companies pledged to spend up to $1 million over a four-year period for envi- ronmental research related to the chicken industry. DPI's members include farm families that grow chickens, five poultry companies, employees of the poultry compa- nies, hundreds of allied industry suppliers of products and servic- es, and hundreds of Delmarva- based businesses.
