Agroterrorism and Your Farm

Agroterrorism and Your Farm

A bioterrorism attack is the deliberate release of viruses, bacteria or other germs (agents) used to cause illness or death in people, animals or plants. Terrorists use biological agents because they can be extremely difficult to detect and do not cause illness for several hours to several days. Biological agents can be dispersed by spraying them into the air, by infecting animals that then carry the disease to humans, or by contaminating food and water. Person-to-person spread may also be possible for some diseases.

Use this checklist to prepare your farm before, during, and after an agroterrorism situation.
