The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets reminds all state farm operations that the annual winter manure-spreading ban is underway. No manure or other agricultural wastes including compost and spoiled feed may be spread on farm fields in Vermont through April 1. Farmers must either have a storage structure capable of holding all manure, or they must be able to stack all manure in a way that will not harm nearby water quality. Exemptions are granted only for emergency situations. For more information, contact the agriculture agency: 828-2431.
