Helping BC Farmers Tackle Climate Change
The BC Climate Agri-Solutions Fund (BCCAF) provides funding to help farmers tackle climate change by adopting beneficial managing practices (BMPs). BCCAF is funded by the Government of Canada through the On-Farm Climate Action Fund (OFCAF).
The BC Climate Agri-Solutions Fund (BCCAF) provides cost-shared funding to eligible producers and supports the training of certified crop advisors and agrologists as well as information sharing throughout the agricultural community. The objective of BCCAF is to support farmers in adopting beneficial management practices (BMPs) that store carbon and reduce greenhouse gases, specifically in the areas of:
- Nitrogen Management
- Cover Cropping
- Rotational Grazing
These practices also provide other environmental benefits such as improved biodiversity and soil health. Other activities to support the adoption of beneficial management practices, such as outreach, education and training are also supported.
