Agricultural Disaster Preparedness and Recovery November 18, 2014 Print Friendly and PDF

Agrosecurity is a framework for protecting food and agriculture systems from all hazards, whether natural, accidental, or deliberate. Agrosecurity efforts focus on farm security, livestock/plant health and protection, food safety, foodborne illness prevention, and early recognition of and response to problems. Education about plant and livestock diseases of concern, farm premise risks, and areas of food safety vulnerability will help producers and managers prepare for potential agrosecurity threats and reduce the impact if they do occur.
