Do You Need A Permit?
The Maryland Department of Agriculture has revised and updated its Farmer's Guide to Environmental Permits. The guide serves as a quick reference to help farmers, businesses and individuals comply with Maryland's environmental regulations. It includes state authorizations issued by the Maryland Department of Agriculture, Environment and Natural Resources. A commonly needed federal approval, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' 404 permit, is also included. The newly revised Farmer's Guide to Environmental Permits is available here.
