Researchers with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service in collaboration with a researcher from the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment successfully tested a new application method for poultry litter in no-till corn on a Western Kentucky farm.

Farmers often use poultry litter as an alternative to chemical fertilizer in pasture and row crop production, as it provides nutrients and organic matter for plants and soil.

 Encouraging sustainability practices and awareness of environmental issues is at the heart of a new Living Learning Program (LLP), which will make its debut this fall at the University of Kentucky.
