Marginal Areas Program

← Back to Alberta programs

Farm less. Make more.

DUC-Alberta’s new Marginal Areas Program increases your profits while farming fewer acres. It provides a financial solution to unproductive land within annual cropped fields by seeding 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 just one way DUC is partnering with Alberta growers to increase the profitability of their land.

For more information, please view the program fact sheet.
