Chesapeake Farms® Conservation
Realize: Sustainable Practices
In addition to being an inspiring meeting location and conference center, Chesapeake Farms® is a resource for collaborative thinking around sustainability issues and conservation for DuPont. Chesapeake Farms® is a catalyst for diverse organizations, across a variety of DuPont businesses to promote conservation.
Currently work is being done to develop and evaluate agronomic practices that can coexist with wildlife management. Our Wildlife Project and research, demonstrates wildlife management activities that are synergistic with production agriculture. And we support sustainable agriculture through research and demonstration of agricultural systems that are productive, profitable and environmentally sound, and customer focused.
Aside from agronomic research, Chesapeake Farms® also works with a variety of national and local universities to promote conservation and sustainability research.
