Good Agricultural Practices – The Environment
The natural resources required for quality crop production must not be taken for granted or disrespected. Producers understand better than others that reliably healthy soil and water are critical to their business. Soil erosion and water pollution are enemies to successful and sustainable crop production.
BSC supports University research and Extension programs and GAP Connections to help ensure growers are aware of and follow those practices which promote environmental responsibility.
A wise tobacco farmer recently told us: “ Take care of the land and the land will take care of you.” We share that perspective as a common sense approach to environmental responsibility.
