Bob Ehrlich coming to Washington County Monday
Bob Ehrlich to Discuss Importance of Cover Crops at Washington County Farm
R ANNAPOLIS — Bob Ehrlich will visit a 3rd generation family farm in Washington County on Monday July 12th to discuss the importance of cover crops in Maryland. Since 2004, farmers have followed Ehrlich’s lead to improve Maryland’s land and water by reducing runoff and erosion.
R In his first term, Governor Ehrlich doubled funding for cover crops to more than $8 million, thanks in part to his landmark Chesapeake Bay Restoration Act, a plan to reduce pollution in our waterways by 7.5 million pounds. Bob Ehrlich’s leadership left Maryland with a plan to nearly triple the acreage of cover crops planted by farmers and stop millions of pounds of pollution from entering Maryland waterways. Maryland farmers plant cover crops in the fall, which absorb unused nutrients, prevent soil erosion, and protect waterways and the environment from pollution runoff.
