dc.description.abstractAgriculture is one of several industries that face criticism today because of its impact on the environment. Pollution prevention technologies can go a long way toward addressing these concerns. They could also be beneficial to producers as they represent a move toward efficiency. The most common environmental pollutants from crop production are sediment, nutrients, and pesticides. This paper identifies pollution prevention opportunities that are economically viable to the farmer and minimize the impacts of these contaminants. It also lists impediments that limit the adaptation of these practices. Finally, it identifies areas where pollution prevention techniques would be economically viable, technically sound, and environmentally sustainable.en_US
