Lucas SWCD Announces Request for Proposals for Dredge Field Application Project
Contact our office with questions at (419) 893-1966. A pre-application meeting and/or tour of the Dredged Material Center of Innovation can be arranged.
The Lucas Soil and Water Conservation District (Lucas SWCD) seeks proposals to conduct a demonstration project for the field application of Toledo Harbor dredge material from the Dredged Material Center of Innovation on a working farm in northwest Ohio. Specifically, we are looking for a demonstration project of a side-by-side comparison of corn or soybean crop yield between two adjacent test plots on farm fields, one of which will need to have been amended with Toledo Harbor dredge material prior to crop planting.
Proposals must be submitted by 4:30PM on July 1, 2021 to Joey Sink-Oiler in an emailed PDF format.
