Expression of Interest

Fill out the Expression of Interest form to begin the process. This will give us a general idea of what your project entails so that the District can match program resources with your project plans.

Rotational Grazing

Rotational Grazing increases the production of forage, the quality of stand and improves drought and flood management.

Nitrogen Management

Manitoba and Saskatchewan make key decisions on formulation, rate, timing, and placement of fertilizer nitrogen that are suitable for soils, climate change, and farming operations within which they operate

Cover Crops

Decrease soil erosion, increase soil fertility, manage weeds, disease and pest by implementing cover crops. Perennial species reduce water logging and increase productivity.

Alternative watering

Fill out the form to enter into 50-50% cost-share with GROW and ALUS toward the purchase of a remote watering system, bowls, components, irrigation or water pipelines.

Grassed Runway

Prevent erosion and rills on our land by implementing grassed runways along the lower elevation of drainage path through your land.

Stream Crossing

Create convenient access for cattle without compromising the integrity of the soil.

Gully Stabilization

Mitigate further erosion disturbance by stabilizing the soil with vegetation roots.

No-Till Seeder

Rent the JD 1500 No-Till Seeder to maintain soil moisture and biodiversity whilst seeding.

Pipeline Plow

Pipeline plow buries a maximum of 2" plastic pipe up to 18' deep for summer use.

Small Watering Storage

Small watering storage can provide flood control, decrease hydrological pressure on farms and infrastructure, as well as provide water from a local water source. Funded through Ag-Action we can partner with you on your water retention projects. Having an Environmental Farm Plan for your farm is required.

Environmental Farm Plan

Contact us for a thorough description of all the components of the EFP application.

Watering System Rentals

Rentals of watering systems available for $200/month for a maximum of 2 moths. AWWD staff will install, maintain and uninstall system.

Riparian Fencing

The District can implement methods such as fencing, improved crossing, vegetation establishment and other techniques to reduce/prevent erosion and stabilize banks.

Tree Orders

For your own tree needs, order them through the district at $1.50 per tree for conservation grade size trees and plant them yourself.

Shelterbelts

Tree shelterbelts protect soil from wind erosion, trap snow during winter, provide wildlife habitat and sequester carbon. Plastic mulch can be used in an effort to reduce maintenance and improve seedling survival. Minimum shelterbelt planting fee is $150 when planted by the district.

Abandoned Wells

Protect ground water quality by having your abandoned well sealed. Landowners pay between $50 - $100 to seal the well. Materials and contractor are organized by the district.

Survey/Mapping Requests

Purchase aerial images, digital elevation models, contours, and more spatial products regarding of an area of interest.
