BMP Sheets: The BMPs are provided in six sheets; an overall sheet which provides BMP options for all agricultural herbicides and five individual sheets which provide BMP options for the herbicides acetochlor, alachlor, atrazine, metolachlor and metribuzin. The BMP sheets were written in 2004 and updated in 2008. Subsequently, the BMPs for all agricultural herbicides and acetochlor were revised in 2010.
BMP Posters: Three posters are available with feature the MDA Water Quality BMPs for Agricultural Herbicides:
