An understanding of total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) is important when planning and implementing conservation practices. You need to define and plan for TMDLs as part of your farm's conservation plan. But you also need to consider all the land and farmers in the entire watershed, as well as the impact of management decisions that you and other farmers make on the whole watershed.
