About EPA's National Agriculture Center

EPA's National Agriculture Center (Ag Center), with the support of the United States Department of Agriculture, serves growers, livestock producers, other agribusinesses, and agricultural information/education providers. 

The Ag Center brings together regulatory and non-regulatory agriculture-related information and other items of interest to the agriculture community from across EPA such as:

  • Pesticides
  • Animal manure management
  • Agriculture/EPA Partnerships
  • Sustainability
  • Worker Protection Standard

The Ag Center also provides a free News Service that provides subscribers with the latest ag-related news from all of EPA. The free News Service allows subscribers to keep up-to-date on recent news releases, regulation changes, compliance deadlines, reports, and other information of direct importance to the agricultural community.

Please visit the National Service Center for Environmental Publications (NSCEP) page to request copies of agriculture-related documents and publications. NSCEP is EPA's repository of digital and print EPA publications. You can search and retrieve, download, print and/or order EPA technical, scientific, or educational materials free of charge.
