Agriculture is the second largest industry in Florida. Each year, farms, ranches, nurseries and other agricultural businesses generate billions of dollars for our region's economy.

Agricultural Best Management Practices (BMPs) are practical, cost-effective actions that agricultural businesses can use to reduce pesticides, fertilizers, animal waste and other pollutants entering our water resources.

BMPs are designed to protect or improve water quality while maintaining or even enhancing agricultural production.

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection develop and adopt BMPs by rule for different types of agricultural operations.
