  • Growing Forward

This program provides technical assistance to agricultural producers to complete a Long-Term Water Management Plan (LTWMP), and shares the cost of related enhancements of their on-farm water supply management.

The Growing Forward 2 On-Farm Water Management Program (2013-2018) addresses two key industry priorities:

  1. Improved resource management. The program helps producers achieve greater water security and more effective and efficient management of their on-farm water resources, enhancing the sustainability of those resources.
  2. Improved production capacity. Producers who improve their water management capability advance the long-term competitiveness of their operation, making them better able to embrace business opportunities.
