The Agricultural Stewardship Assurance Program (ASAP) is a verification program that champions Missouri farmers who are responsible stewards of the land.
ASAP will better communicate, recognize and promote the good stewardship and sustainability that Missouri producers continue to practice and improve upon.
Becoming ASAP-verified has domestic and global benefits. You’ll receive official verification of your farm’s sustainability and access to international markets.
If a Missouri farmer practices sustainable management on their operations in any of the six categories, they can become ASAP-verified. Click to see our categories.
