The ban on winter manure spreading ended on April 1
The ban on winter manure spreading ended on April 1 but agriculture experts say it may still not be a good idea to start yet. The Vermont Agency of Agriculture said another snowy March brought challenging field conditions to many parts of Vermont. Agriculture leaders say manure cannot be applied to fields that are frozen or snow-covered. It also can’t be applied to fields that are saturated, likely to runoff or conducive to any other off-site movement.
