To be eligible for the protections of the Right to Farm Act, a commercial farm must be in compliance with generally accepted agricultural management practices (AMPs). Only responsible farmers, or those complying with generally accepted AMPs, are eligible for Right to Farm protections.

Listed below are the twelve AMPs the SADC has officially promulgated, with links to courtesy copies of the rules. For an official copy of any rule, click on "Subchapter 2A" on the SADC rules page to visit http://www.lexisnexis.com/hottopics/njcode/. Should a Right to Farm matter concern activities not addressed by one of these AMPs, the SADC or the appropriate County Agriculture Development Board (CADB) will determine whether or not the activities comply with generally accepted operations or practices.
