Best Management Practices Guide for Producing Nursery Crops Third Edition (2013) - Southern Nursery Association

The Best Management Practices (BMP) Guide is designed to help growers identify and promote exceptional management practices, methods and procedures. These management practices can be implemented regardless of nursery size or location and empowers container and field-grown plant producers to operate at a higher level of efficiency and effectiveness while implementing proactive management practices necessary to produce plants with minimal environmental impact.

This ever-popular guide has become recognized as the undisputed benchmark for horticultural BMPs in the U.S. with more than 6,000 copies in use today. The Best Management Practices Guide, v 1.0 was published in 1996 with an updated v 2.0 printed in 2007. Version 3.0 has been updated to include the latest best management practices, an enhanced irrigation section and two new sections - Constructed Wetlands:  A How To Guide For Nurseries, as well as information on the RMA Crop Protection Insurance Program.
