Agricultural burning refers to the intentional use of fire for vegetation management; both in agricultural settings, such as fields and orchards, as well as in wildlands, including rangeland and forests. Revisions to the burning requirements would cover growers who burn agricultural waste and land managers who use prescribed burning on rangelands and in forests.
More Information about the Smoke Management Program and the July 1,1999 preliminary draft regulation, which is the focus of the workshops.
