Pennsylvania Sustainable Agriculture Project -- 1993: On-farm Research and Demonstration Results

Project Period:

15 months 1993-04-01 - 1994-06-01

Principal Investigator:

Bryan Petrucci, CAE

During the 1993 growing season, AFT and the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture established 20 on-farm research/demonstration sites on farms throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed and at other locations in the state with cooperating producers. On-farm plots were designed to address farm management problems with an emphasis on reducing impacts to water quality, preventing soil erosion, improving farm profitability and protecting the rural environment.
