Abstract: A study of the professional literature indicates that the meaning of the term BMP, literally signifying a Best Management Practice, has diverged, depending on the professional field. Use of the term tends to be fairly consistent in the agricultural literature, referring to one of several highly recommended and often well-studied approaches to crop and livestock production that achieve both environmental and economic goals. An agricultural BMP typically consists of the most desirable action or set of actions that could be taken to manage a valuable resource or handle a pollutant.
