About the Ag Center


The "first stop" for people in the agricultural community who need information on compliance with environmental regulations is the National Agriculture Compliance Assistance Center.

Offered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the support of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Ag Center offers comprehensive, easy-to-understand information about approaches to compliance that are both environmentally protective and agriculturally sound.

The Ag Center -- a part of EPA's Office of Compliance -- is focusing first on providing information about EPA's own requirements. The Center relies heavily on existing sources of agricultural information and established distribution channels. 

Through a variety of channels, including this Web site, the Ag Center provides growers, livestock producers, other agribusinesses, and agricultural information/education providers easy access to its resources.

USDA and other agencies provide educational and technical information on agricultural production, but assistance in complying with environmental requirements has not been as readily accessible. The Ag Center is working with USDA and other federal and state agencies to provide the agricultural community with a definitive source for federal environmental compliance information. The Ag Center provides links to a variety of topics, including:

The Ag Center also supports regional and state regulatory agencies in their effort to provide compliance assistance to local agricultural communities.
