BENEFICIAL MANAGEMENT PRACTICES PROGRAM

The 2021 Beneficial Management Practices (BMP) Program will open Spring 2021. Details for the various application intake windows will be available soon. Applications must be complete and be accompanied with all appropriate or required information and documents in order to be processed for approval.

Program Overview

There are over 70 categories of practices and actions that are eligible for cost-share funding through the EFP Beneficial Management Practices program. For over 17 years the program has helped place B.C. farms and ranches at the forefront of regenerative agriculture and climate adaptation.

There are BMPs which support farms to act on Regenerative Agriculture practices in areas such as: building soil fertility and health, increasing water percolation; water retention, and clean and safe water runoff, enhancing and conserving biodiversity on farms, capacity for self-renewal and resiliency through ecosystem health and sequestering carbon.

Program Eligibility

B.C. producers who develop and have completed a current (within 5-years) Environmental Farm Plan may be eligible to apply for cost-shared incentives through the Beneficial Management Practices program. Funding is to support implementation of actions identified in the on-farm action plan.
