    P.E.I. Seeking Public Consultation on Manure Guidelines Update


    The Prince Edward Island government is seeking public feedback on plans to update the provincial guidelines for manure management for the agricultural industry, an Aug. 23 news release said.

    The Manure Management Guidelines will replace the current guidelines that were released in 1999. The release noted the review will focus on ensuring the recommended practices align with modern assessment tools and current scientific considerations, while also recognizing manure as an agricultural resource for nutrients and soil health. A climate change lens will also be applied to ensure that beneficial management practices in the updated guidelines consider ways to adapt to and address a changing climate.

    “The previous guidelines have not been updated in some time, so we look forward to modernizing this process as we continue to prioritize climate change, water quality and soil health across our Island, and improve upon best management practices in agriculture,” Darlene Compton, P.E.I. minister of agriculture and land and deputy premier, said in the release.

    Islanders are encouraged to participate in the survey by visiting P.E.I. Manure Management Guidelines Consultation Survey.
