Abstract:

On June 17, 1999, Delaware Governor Tom Carper signed House Substitute 1 for House Bill 250. This Bill, which was passed by a unanimous vote of the Delaware General Assembly, modified Title 3 of the Delaware Code by adding Chapter 22: Nutrient Management. The new legislation establishes a Nutrient Management Commission, which is charged with developing a Nutrient Management Program in Delaware. This program affects essentially all commercial agricultural operations, as well as many agricultural and non-agricultural operations that have largely been unregulated in the past. Mandatory nutrient management planning will begin in 2003, with full implementation legislated by 2007.
