Re: BMPs



Martha,

Farm*A*Syst, a national pollution prevention program for farms,
incorporates BMPs into risk assessment worksheets on pesticide storage,
pesticide application and IPM, and animal feedlots.  What is really
valuable about these worksheets is that they are state-specific.  Examples
of these worksheets can be found at www.wisc.edu/farmasyst/worklink.html.
In terms of pesticide use, worksheets have been developed for specific
crops such as potatos.  This Wisconsin worksheet is available at
www.wisc.edu/farmasyst/contact/wipotato.html.

Texas Farm*A*Syst or Tex*A*Syst has an extensive web site
(waterhome.brc.tamus.edu/texasyst/) with worksheets and slide training
programs that provide state-specific guidance on best management for
pesticide storage and animal feedlots.
