The authors of this topic hub would like to extend a special thanks to all contributors who helped make this product technically accurate and a credible resource.

The hub was developed after a survey of high school agricultural education programs identified deficiencies with current practices in pollution prevention and waste management in teaching labs. The study, entitled Pollution Prevention in Agricultural Education Laboratories and Field Areas, was of Montana educators, however, further references showed that it was common situation in agricultural teaching programs throughout the U.S. "Lack of knowledge" was the primary barrier identified by survey respondents to practicing and improving pollution prevention in teaching areas with "further education" designated as the primary need. A self-audit tool was developed to assist educators and this hub was created to give pollution prevention service providers the information they need to offer technical assistance.
