What is a Freshwater Farm Plan?

A freshwater farm plan (FWFP) identifies practical actions on farm that help improve local waterways and overall water quality. This is a requirement from 2025 for farming enterprises which are 20 hectares or more (arable and/or pastoral use), or 5 hectares or more (horticultural use).

How the QCONZ FWFP Tool works

Log in and use the wizard feature to step through each section of the plan. Once complete, submit your plan and a report will automatically generate for you to share. The plan is a working document so you can make updates at any stage. The tool contains a reminder system to help with closing out actions.

The QCONZ FWFP tool will enable you to:

  • Build a freshwater farm plan to help meet compliance requirements
  • Identify areas where there is risk to fresh water i.e. slope, effluent run-off, unfenced waterways
  • Create actions to mitigate the risk
  • Record completed actions
  • Print and share the plan

The system is expandable and includes Biodiversity and Greenhouse gases.  It will stay current with the latest MfE and Regional Council regulations as new needs emerge. Variations on this system are already in use on some New Zealand dairy farms.
