The proposed rule changes are to more clearly define the difference between the Department’s certification programs for acreage burns and for the new certified pile burning program which is being added to the Rule 5I-2.006, F.A.C. It also highlights the advantages of being a certified burner for either acreage or broadcast. There is clarification concerning the burning of agricultural plastic to bring it in line with proposed changes from FDEP. The language of the proposed rule has been simplified to facilitate the understanding of all Floridians.
