Agricultural Best Practices

 

As farmers, there are many things you can do to improve environmental quality.  You can minimize the use of chemicals, you can take care to dispose wastes properly, you can manage your land in ways to benefit birds, butterflies and wildlife, and you can maintain buffer zones that decrease the amount of polluted runoff that enters our streams and wetlands.  Explore the links below to learn more.  If you have a specific question, feel free to contact the PRCWA office.
