EMS for farmers



P2 experts:

I am interested in whether any states or agriculture trade associations have looked at applying an environmental management system to farms.  
Also, has any group looked into using ISO 14001 for farms or agribusinesses?  Michigan is looking at an agricultural assurance program for animial feeding operations, which goes beyond Farm-A-Syst to encompass compliance and pollution prevention of point and non-point sources. Has anyone adopted or developed an incentive program that covers management, P2 and compliance for farms?
