Abstract:

Public concern over the effects of agriculture and forestry production practices on environmental quality has grown in recent years. Louisiana has more than 340 stream segments on the 303(d) list as being impaired (not meeting established standards for oxygen, fecal bacteria and metals). These environmental concerns, along with the need for agricultural producers in Louisiana to be more proficient in production and farm management/marketing to remain economically viable, has lead to the multi-agency effort to develop the Master Farmer Program. The Master Farmer Program is an effort to demonstrate that agricultural producers can and will voluntarily reduce the impact that agricultural production has on Louisiana's environment.
