Agricultural Pollution Prevention

Question:   Agricultural Pollution Prevention:   Pollution Prevention (P2)
for the manufacturing industry is clearly defined and represented by the P2
hierarchy (from reducing pollution to properly disposing of it).  But P2
for agriculture remains ambiguous, focusing more on pollution control than
P2.   The Regional Agricultural Team (RAT) at US EPA Region 9 is developing
an agricultural P2 policy to use in our grant decision-making process. Has
anyone already developed, or know of, an effective, well-defined P2 policy
for agriculture?
