Ducks Unlimited Canada and Crop Production Services are again offering a forage seed rebate for producers wanting to sow fields to grass.
Under the program, Alberta producers receive a $100 rebate on every 50-pound bag of Proven Seed forage varieties purchased at CPS retail locations.
While the program is best suited to producers in the Parkland and Prairie regions, farmers located close to DUC habitat priority boundaries may also be eligible. Last year in Alberta, 12,905 cultivated acres were seeded to grass under the program.
For more info, go to a CPS location or call 1-800-661-3334.
