Agricultural Best Management Practices (BMPs)

A guidance for farmers.

Agricultural "Best Management Practices" are site specific, economically feasible practices that are applied by farmers while accounting for environmental and public health impacts. 

Best Management Practices are an industry driven effort to maintain agricultural production in a profitable, environmentally sensitive and sustainable manner. BMPs are not meant to be regulatory as every farm operation and site is different and may require special practices. But BMPs are meant to provide guidance as to practices that farmers can strive towards implementing on their farms. 

The following links connect to guidance documents which provide farmers and producers with the latest guidance to benefit their operation. They will change, and be updated, as practices and technology change.
