Agriculture Best Management Practices


All sessions of the 2020 Ag BMP Summit are online!

Agricultural Best Management Practices (BMPs) are practical measures that producers can take to reduce the amount of fertilizers, pesticides, animal waste, and other pollutants entering our water resources. They are designed to improve water quality while maintaining agricultural production. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) has adopted BMPs for most commodities in the state. Each BMP manual covers key aspects of water quality and water conservation.

The Agricultural Best Management Practices program works to provide research-based information to develop best management practices and education to facilitate the adoption of BMPs.
