Flood Prevention Information for Agricultural and Food Businesses


Before a flood, MDA helps farmers, ranchers and agricultural businesses prepare by providing recommendations and guidance for moving livestock, stored grain, food items, agricultural inputs, seed and other materials out of harm’s way. Our field personnel also work with agricultural chemical facilities to strengthen safeguards around equipment and storage tanks to prevent accidental release of product.
