Choosing a safe and suitable farm site is just as important to human health as it is to the health of your crop.
When making land use decisions, it’s important to consider a few things before planting:
- Do you know the history and prior uses of the site?
- Is the land prone to flooding?
- Is it located within 1 mile of a feedlot?
These are only a few of the questions you should ask when assessing site risks. Below you’ll find resources to help you choose a safe site and reduce contamination risk before planting.
