Agri-Environmental Group Plan (AEGP) –
Funding for Sustainable Farming
The Agri-Environmental Group Plan (AEGP) is an initiative under Growing Forward 1 (2008-March 2013) and Growing Forward 2 (launched in April 2013).
Growing Forward 2 is a federal-provincial-territorial policy framework of agricultural programs. In Saskatchewan the AEGP initiative addresses and encourages producers to implement Beneficial Management Practices (BMP) in order to reduce negative impacts on soil, water, air, and biodiversity. Under GF 2 the AEGP program was handed over to the watershed groups in the Province. For producers in the former Redberry Lake AEGP area (under Growing Forward 1) the North Saskatchewan River Basin Council (NSRBC) will now help with technical assistance. Please visit the NSRBC website for more information and the technician in your area.
