States poised to offer break to farms that install BMPs

States in the Chesapeake Bay watershed are in various stages of considering a program that gives farms nearly a decade of amnesty from new environmental regulations in exchange for their promise to install best management practices.

The programs, known as agricultural certainty, give the farmers an assurance that future rules won't alter their business practices, which they must plan out several years in advance. In exchange, they commit to putting in water-quality practices that are recommended — such as cover crops and grass waterways — but not currently mandatory.
