Environmental benefits to flow out of new action plan

Date:  05 June 2018

A new action plan launched today by farming sector leaders and environment and agriculture Ministers will support the implementation of good farming practices that improve this country’s freshwater quality.

The aim of the Good Farming Practice Action Plan for Water Quality is to have every farmer and grower supported with a farm environment plan. This will help them identify and implement relevant good farming practices for their farm and catchment. It will also enable them to monitor and report on progress.

A farm environment plan can also help farmers and growers to recognise environmental risks and set out ways to manage those risks.
