A new study takes a first of a kind look at food safety and environment on the farm.

The Alberta Environmental Farm Plan Company released the report at it's annual general meeting in Calgary last week.

Therese Thompkins with the company says it contains a lot of pertinent information.

"The Regional Coordinators will find it useful and other people in agriculture that work with on a business level or with local ag organizations."

The report looks at why some farmers may not adopt best management practises for the environment or food safety.
