Project Information

Summary:

Note to reader, attached is the complete final report for FNE03-480.

The evaluation of liquefied manure from the cranberry bog/partitioned aquaculture system fish farm applied as a fertilizer for a beach plum crop. The beach plum crop that was planted in the spring of 2002 were measured and mulched during the start of this project. The fertilizer applied during the first year was a commercially bagged 19-19-19 fertilizer. All beach plum seedlings received this application except the control rows. This type of fertilizer was used because not enough fish waste was generated to be used. Thus, the PAS system does not make this project feasible.
