(This amendment provides a general fund appropriation of $5.0 million in each year for support of the agricultural best management practices (BMPs) program operated by the Department of Conservation and Recreation. The agricultural BMPs program provides an incentive-based, voluntary mechanism for reducing the nonpoint source pollution attributable to Virginia's farms. The program works by providing the funding necessary for individual landowners and the state to each share in the costs of the best management practices' implementation.)
