Make every acre count.
The Marginal Areas Program increases your profits while farming fewer acres. It provides a financial incentive to seed those hard-to-access/poorly producing areas to perennial forages.
Forages improve profitability, increase pollinator habitat and biodiversity, reduce herbicide-resistant weeds, act as buffer zones to meet product label guidelines and manage clubroot issues. This program is designed to seed down small areas that are unprofitable to grow crops while farming less land better.
Receive $125/acre on eligible land and get a Pollinator Power Pak.
Let’s find a solution for those unproductive acres.
Biodiversity benefits your business
On-farm biodiversity increases soil health, offers biological pest control, pollination, cycles nutrients, decreases erosion, reduces fertilizer use, and prevents unintended runoff.
Ducks Unlimited Canada offers programs that increase your farm’s biodiversity… and leave you to reap all the environmental and economic rewards.

Grow more forage
One of our most popular programs and a solution to the lack of quality feed in some areas due to dry conditions – the forage program from DUC and our partners is the real deal.
Get financial incentives to convert cultivated land to hay or pasture.
Contact us for program details and to determine eligibility.
But if you like having options…
Work with our forage experts to see if we have other programs that might meet your needs.
Or do you have small areas on your farm that aren’t as productive as you’d like due to excessive moisture or salinity issues? We’ll pay you to seed those unproductive acres to forage.
Find land to hay or graze
Every year, we open land for haying and/or grazing by tender.
Check back in early summer when the tenders in your area are listed.
Agreement forms must be used in the bidding process. See samples of the 2020 hay sales agreement and Grazing Contract.

Looking to buy land?
We have properties available through our Revolving Land Conservation Program.
This is how it works. We purchase land. We restore the property’s wetlands and grasslands, then place a conservation easement on the land title. That’s when the land becomes available for purchase and is put back in the hands of the agricultural community.
Proceeds from land sales are used to fund other conservation projects in the area.

Conserve your land for the future
Conservation easements are legal tools to help you protect the natural areas on your land.
While maintaining ownership, you make a commitment to conserve wildlife habitat agreed upon by limiting the amount and type of activity that can occur.
Our easements now suit your needs better, too.

Put water back on your land
Help lessen the impacts of drought on your land by restoring a previously drained wetland.
Our restoration programs focus on restoring naturally occurring water levels of drained or altered wetlands.
By partnering with us, you’ll receive expert technical assistance, and in some regions, project funding and compensation is also available.
