The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) will provide oversight to administer cost share to landowners to implement FDACS and USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) water quality-focused Best Management Practices (BMPs) which will reduce pollutant loadings by 20-30% per application. The objective 180 of this activity is to complete participating farm enrollment in the program and implement the BMPs to reduce sediments and pollutants generated from agricultural operations in the focus area, which will also reduce their deposition into tributary streams of the Apalachicola River and improve agricultural irrigation efficiency in the Apalachicola River Basin including increased water conservation.
