ENVIRONMENTAL FARM PLAN PROGRAM

Plan for peace of mind

Farmers who have an Environmental Farm Plan are serious about learning how to reduce agriculture’s impact on the environment. Many Environmental Farm Plan participants enjoy increased efficiency, profitability and new customers as a result of increased environmental sustainability. What opportunities exist on your farm?


The Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) program is now open. If you wish to have an EFP renewed or completed for your farm operation please contact the ARDCorp office.

The Beneficial Management Practices (BMP) program is expected to begin accepting applications by mid-June. Details will be posted on this site by the end of May. Stay tuned!!
