Researchers have studied sustainable use of manure in these watersheds and alternative storage systems that can make transport of poultry litter more feasible and economical. Learn more about those systems as well as the economical implications of moving nutrients outside of these watersheds.


Presenters will include Erik Lichtenberg from the University of Maryland and Jeff Vitale from Oklahoma State University. Bill Lazarus and Josh Payne will moderate.
