Introduction to Agricultural Best Management Practices

Agricultural Best Management Practices can be used to enroll agricultural producers in best management practice programs and monitor the success of those programs.

It simplifies the enrollment and verification process in best management practice programs and helps agriculture agencies promote efficient water resource practices. Monitoring enrollment and verification data in near real time allows program managers to target outreach efforts where they are needed to ensure water quality for everyone. Agricultural Best Management Practices is typically implemented by agriculture agencies and other government agencies that want to increase participation in best management practice programs.

The Agricultural Best Management Practices solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you enroll participants in best management practices (BMP) programs, verify those participants, and analyze trends in BMP programs.
