PSCFO Council Meeting
November 19 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Under what conditions should farmers apply bio-solids or should they at all is the main topic to be discussed at the PA State Council of Farm Organizations (PSCFO) November 19 meeting at PDA. Studies have found bio-solid application to be beneficial but opponents say that the treated waste (aka sewage sludge) is not treated sufficiently and poses an environmental health hazard. Add to that push-back from some communities and legislators who believe that municipalities should have a veto power. Right to Farm (ACRE) also enters the fray, making this a very interesting and stimulating meeting. There will also be program updates from the PA Department of Agriculture and political updates following the November election.
