Support to Help Farmers Reduce their Carbon Emissions

ONfruit

The Growing Forward 2 (GF2) Cost-Share funding Assistance Program for Producers has been enhanced with four new best management practices (BMPs) categories added and enhancements to several existing BMPs.  GF2 funding is available to support farmers to make changes in their farming operations and encourages actions with multi-benefits for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving water quality and supporting soil health.  These enhancements will support producers to transition to low carbon production and encourage energy efficiency and energy conservation on-farms.

Highlights of the new BMPs and changes in existing GF2 BMPs are below. This funding is delivered by the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA).  Please see the OSCIA’s website www.ontariosoilcrop.org/oscia-programs/growing-forward-2/ for the program guide, application forms, and full details on how producers can participate.
