Canadian Agricultural Partnership – Farm Stewardship Program

 

Farm Stewardship Program:

 

The Farm Stewardship Program (FSP) provides Saskatchewan producers funding to implement beneficial management practices (BMPs) in three priority areas – water, climate change and biodiversity.

The FSP focuses on four outcomes:

  • Demonstrated improvements on water quality;
  • Demonstrated reductions in greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Enhanced resilience of the agriculture sector; and
  • Biodiversity maintained.

A BMP is defined as any agricultural management practice that: 

  • Ensures the long-term health and sustainability of land-related resources used for agricultural production; 
  • Positively impacts the long-term economic and environmental viability of agricultural production; and 
  • Minimizes negative impacts and risk to the environment.

Funding

Each BMP has its own funding limits and eligibility requirements.  Separate applications must be made for each eligible project. To learn about a specific BMP, please refer to the BMP page.
