BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES SERIES

A “best management practice” (BMP) is a practical, affordable approach to conserving a farm’s soil and water resources without sacrificing productivity.

A team of farmers, researchers, extension staff and agribusiness professionals decides what qualifies as a best management practice

The Best Management Practices Series is an award-winning series of innovative publications:

- presenting affordable options for protecting soil and water resources on the farm;

- supporting individual farm planning and decision-making in the short and long term;

- harmonizing productivity, business objectives and the environment; and

- presenting a range of circumstances and options to address a particular environmental concern.

BMP books will help you:

- understand an environmental issue in context of your operation or property;

- see options for addressing an issue that works with your circumstances;

- plan and put into action farm-proven, environmentally responsible management practices;

- increase efficiencies - in resource use and production;

- improve property now and for future generations;

- demonstrate stewardship to neighbours ;

create long-term plans and sharpen day-to-day decision-making; and

- enrich natural areas.
