About Alberta EFP


Why do an EFP? This video is an introduction to the Alberta Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) and includes testimonials from producers on the benefits of completing an EFP.

 

 

Taking Care of the Land


Alberta farmers explain why it’s important to keep the environment top of mind. The video also highlights a number of environmental farming practices that increase yield and bring other benefits to both the producers and their land.

Species at Risk


Alberta EFP has added a Species at Risk component to the EFP workbook. Conserving species at risk and their habitat is important for the environment and to sustainable agriculture.

How-To Videos

Quick fixes for conserving your land and making your operations more efficient and sustainable

 

 

Riparian Restoration Planting


Planting trees (in this case live-cutting of willows) is an easy fix for restoring riparian areas, providing habitat for wildlife and improving the health and growth of the surrounding ecosystem.

 

 

Off-Site Watering


Keeping your cattle away from natural water-ways has benefits for both livestock and the land. This video will show you how to install and maintain a solar powered off-site watering system with pump, solar panel, battery, electronics and watering trough.

 

 

Anti-Syphon Device


An anti-syphon valve is a type of check valve that allows water to flow forward, while allowing water on the backside of the valve to drain out.  It prevents water from syphoning back from the source when you are using a hose, e.g. when filling a bucket or trough. Watch the video to see how to install an anti-syphon device.

 

 

Backflow Prevention


A backflow preventer is a check valve that only allows one way flow of water. It permits clean water to flow in while preventing other water from entering the line. This video shows you how to install a backflow preventer.
