Freshwater Farm Plan 

We've got a tool that will make sorting
your FWFP a hell of a lot easier. 

Freshwater Farm Plans (FWFP) are a regulated farm planning process for farmers
and growers that will provide a practical way to identify, manage and
reduce the impact of farming on the freshwater environment. 

How can the FarmIQ
FWFP tool help you?

Our tool keeps things simple, by stepping you through the
entire FWFP process. We'll help you achieve the
following, in small, easy-to-chew bites:

  • Map your land

  • Complete a risk assessment

  • Build a 5-year action plan

You can work by yourself or in tandem with your consultant
or farm advisor, thanks to our easy third-party access.
