The Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) is a voluntary, whole farm, self-assessment tool that helps producers identify their environmental risks and develop plans to mitigate identified risks. It is also beneficial to gain a better understanding of legal requirements related to environmental issues.
An EFP will identify what you are already doing well and pinpoint where improvements can be made. By addressing these risks, you increase operational efficiency. In order to receive any future government funding for any on farm projects you may be required to have a current EFP.
