Farm*A*Syst is a partnership between government agencies and private business that enables you to prevent pollution on farms, ranches, and homes using confidential environmental assessments.
Farm*A*Syst can help you determine what risks -- whether from livestock waste disposal, pesticide management or petroleum storage -- could threaten your family's health and financial security. A system of step-by-step factsheets and worksheets helps you to identify the behaviors and practices that are creating those risks.
All information you gather is confidential. You decide what changes you need to make an when to make them.
Some of the issues that Farm*A*Syst can help you address include:
Because Farm*A*Syst is a voluntary program, you decide whether to assess your property on your own, or if you want additional technical advice from your local government agencies or businesses.
Since 1991, thousands of farmers and ranchers throughout the country have used Farm*A*Syst. The program has been recognized nationally and internationally for its common-sense approach to managing environmental risks.
Whether you grow soybeans or cotton, raise cattle or chickens, manage 100 acres or 1,000 acres, Farm*A*Syst is the program to get you started.
