Get cash to seed grass

DUC’s Forage Program offers a solution to the lack of quality feed in some areas due to dry conditions and other agronomic challenges. And we’ve nearly DOUBLED our per-acre payment! Receive $100/acre when you seed eligible lands to hay or pasture. With our stackable incentives, that payment could climb to $200/acre! Once established, you manage the forage stand the way you like it, with no restrictions on grazing or haying.

Want to experiment with forages in annual crop margins?

If you have areas in your grain field that aren’t as productive as you’d like due to weeds, salinity and other challenges, DUC’s Marginal Areas Program pays to seed those acres to forage.
