Press release

By Press release

January 23, 2014 – The Maryland Department of Agriculture has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit proposals for demonstration projects from vendors, businesses, and individuals offering technologies, equipment, infrastructure, or services that can improve the management and utilization of manure and other agricultural resources.

Maryland's nutrient management regulations govern the amount, timing, and placement of crop nutrients, including manure and other organic nutrient sources. Compliance with Maryland's nutrient management regulations may be improved by altering the nutrient content of organic nutrient resources such as energy generation or new products that add value to the farm business model.


MDA has $2.5 million available to invest in these types of innovative technologies during State Fiscal Year 2014, which ends June 30, 2014.


Vendors, businesses, and individuals are invited to respond to this RFP. A briefing will be held at 10 a.m. on January 30, 2014 at MDA to describe the RFP and answer questions.


Those wanting to attend should respond with Attachment E from the RFP by January 27, 2014. Proposals should be sent by 4 p.m. local time on February 28, 2014 to:
