More Information - Better Farming, Brighter Future
Best Management Practices for a sustainable cotton industry
myBMP encourages the continual improvement of cotton farms’ responsible and efficient use of resources while showcasing the productivity and environmental gains achieved by you, Australia’s cotton growers.
The industry’s myBMP program is a voluntary farm and environmental management system that assesses on-farm practices, from biosecurity and workplace health and safety through to soil health. Each aspect of the program showcases the Australian cotton industry’s ability to manage and self-regulate, reinforced by continued grower participation and certification in myBMP.
Better Farming Brighter Future – Monsanto grants towards myBMP Certification
Monsanto is dedicated to developing solutions to help make agriculture more sustainable. This is why we are proud to support the myBMP program and are committed to maintaining the cotton industry’s leadership in the responsible and efficient use of resources.
We are offering Australian cotton farmers one $2,000* ex GST grant per audit in recognition of the achievement in becoming myBMP certified.
The Better Farming Brighter Future grants are available to all cotton farmers who undertake an audit and complete myBMP certification of their operation by 31 December 2015.
Qualifying for Better Farming Brighter Future grants
Successfully completing an audit is the final step in achieving myBMP certification. Grants will be paid as a reimbursement against the TSP technology fee invoice following confirmation from the myBMP Audit Office that certification has been achieved. Growers do not need to apply for a grant separately.
