Conservation Award-Winning Farm Hosts Tour

July 23, 2019by ncdea

DELAWARE, Sussex CD – Sen. Tom Carper, center, toured the farm of Richard and Kathy Carlisle in Bridgeville, Delaware to highlight technological advances in farming and the benefits of the 2018 Farm Bill. Carper and Carlisle are shown with NRCS, the Sussex Conservation District, the Delmarva Soil Health Partnership and other farm and conservation officials.

Carlisle said some of his conservation practices include conversion of his irrigation to electric, use of no-till which limits soil compaction and use of cover crops, at least some of which are planted with an air seeder. He said the use of cover crops helps control erosion (a timely topic after a downpour the night before on a newly planted bean field), regulate soil moisture and limit weed impact.
