Crop yield effects of pipeline installation
The Bradford County Conservation District and Penn State Extension are looking to study the effect that gas pipeline installation is having on crop yields. The goal is to confirm and develop protocols to follow in order to most effectively maintain, or bring the soil productivity back to, pre-construction (or better) condition. We are seeking landowners that would be willing to share their experience with these situations (both good and bad) and partner with us to potentially include their operation and property in the study. If you or anyone you know would like to speak with us about participating in this study, please give Kevin Brown a call at (570) 265-5539 ext. 101.
