Delaware has a rich agricultural history, and the industry remains a key driver of Delaware’s economy, contributing $8 billion in annual economic activity. Governor Carney believes Delaware must continue to invest in its farming industry, coordinating resources for small operations while improving nutrient management practices to help farmers protect our environment.
 

Governor Carney will:

  • Invest in farmland preservation
  • Reduce permitting barriers for farm construction projects
  • Improve nutrient management practices to protect the environment
  • Promote new agribusiness opportunities
