Farmers can attend educational events, watch approved videos and webinars, and read articles to meet the MAEAP education requirement.

Any farmer interested in MAEAP verification can use this method to learn about environmental topics that may help farmers improve the environmental performance of his/her farming systems.  MAEAP recognizes that some farmers may be unable to view the videos or webinars on their home computer due to slow Internet connections. In those cases, we encourage farmers to check with the local library for public computers with higher speed connections. Farmers also have the option to attend an educational event in-person. To find an event in your area, please check out our events section.

  1. Read or view three approved units below.
