Farm Stewardship Program (FSP)
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.
Farm and Ranch Water Infrastructure Program (FRWIP)
The Farm and Ranch Water Infrastructure Program is designed to:
- Support the development of secure and sustainable water sources for agricultural use in Saskatchewan;
- Mitigate the impact of drought; and
- Improve public safety and reduce potential groundwater contamination through well decommissioning.
FRWIP has two program streams:
- Dugout, Pipeline and Well Rebate
- Well Decommissioning and Special Projects Pre-Approval
See below for all BMPs and maximum funding that may be received under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership Program.
