Minnesota Ag Water Quality Certification Program
The MAWQCP is a voluntary opportunity for farmers and agricultural landowners to take the lead in implementing conservation practices that protect our water. Those who implement and maintain approved farm management practices will be certified and in turn obtain regulatory certainty for a period of ten years.
Local conservation professionals assist farmers through the certification process. MAWQCP is administered and funded primarily by the State of MN through the Department of Agricultural (MDA). MDA is working with TSA’s, including the TSA 4, to expand the program statewide through a regional implementation approach.
