Chesapeake Bay Program

In 2005, the PA DEP Chesapeake Bay Program shifted its program emphasis to support management type best management practices (BMPs), such as no-till, cover crop, and precision farming. These practices are the focus of the PA Chesapeake Bay Tributary Strategies and have scientifically demonstrated the greatest reduction in soil and nutrient loss. These BMPs have also proved the greatest return in financial investment for the individual farmer/operator.
