Historically, many people have viewed wetlands as “wastelands,” having few virtues. But that perception has changed. Now it is known that wetlands provide many useful services, from improving water quality to providing habitat for important fish and wildlife. These kinds of benefits would be costly to create, so maintaining natural wetlands is good for both the economy and the environment.

Many smaller wetlands occur in Georgia farmlands, and many of the values provided by wetlands benefit Georgia farmers. In this booklet, we highlight the key virtues of wetlands to agriculture, describing how wetlands associated with Georgia farms can contribute to agricultural value.
