Alberta's Environmental Farm Plan program has released its latest version of the webbook.
Version 4.0 is more streamlined and includes an optional beekeeping chapter and an online renewal option.
Farmers can renew their EFP online without having to complete a new workbook each time.
It's important to note that producers that may still be working on the 3.1 version of the EVP have until June 30th to complete it.
After the June 30th deadline producers will be required to use the new 4.0 version.
Producers that completed the course and have a certificate, or letter of completion from the last ten years are still considered to be current, regardless of which version they used.
