2019 Clean Water Policy Forum

Clea Water Policy and Funding Panel


Directors-VTIFF.jpg Vermont's Required Agricultural Practices (RAPs) are practices and management strategies outlined by the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets (VAAFM), to which all types of farms must be managed to reduce the impact of agricultural activities on water quality. The RAPs establish nutrient, manure, and waste storage standards, make recommendations for soil health and establish requirements for vegetated buffer zones and livestock exclusion from surface water. The RAPs also establish standards for nutrient management planning and soil conservation. And, when necessary, the RAPs call for enforcement.
