Signing up to participate in nursery bmps means you are following all the practices currently required to keep our water resources clean. By filing a notice of intent form (noi) you will be presumed compliant with all state water quality standards. This is not a production guide, but a checklist of potential practices that may or may not apply to your situation. You choose the practices to implement that apply to your site. The manual was revised in 2014 to include practices for in-ground nurseries and leatherleaf ferns.
