Agricultural Certainty Program

Edwin Remsberg Corn Harvest

​In 2013, the Maryland General Assembly passed legislation to establish a voluntary Agricultural Certainty Program that will give Maryland farmers a 10-year exemption from new environmental laws and regulations in return for installing best management practices in order to meet local or Chesapeake Bay Total Daily​ Maximum Load (TMDL) goals ahead of schedule.

The program allows participating farmers to conduct business in a predictable regulatory setting, while providing certainty that agricultural pollution controls are being implemented. Farmers must control all nutrient and sediment problems on farms using a Soil Conservation and Water Quality​ Plan and a current Nutrient Management Plan.
