The Partnership for a Sustainable Georgia's AgTrack Program is a joint effort with the state's Department of Natural Resources Pollution Prevention Assistance Division (P2AD) and University of Georgia's Cooperative Extension Service. Through the AgTrack Program, Georgia's farmers and producers volunteer to create an environmental management system (EMS) and implement conservation practices while being promoted as an environmental leader in the state. The AgTrack Program involves all sectors of Georgia agriculture, including row crops, poultry, dairy, and urban agriculture (nurseries, greenhouses, and turf). This partnership also involves businesses and organizations outside of agriculture which are also in the Partnership for a Sustainable Georgia. The Partnership hopes to lead to an exchange of ideas between agriculture and industry that achieves a common goal of environmental stewardship across the entire state of Georgia.
