The Land Utilization Program helps farmers revitalize titled farmland that was once used for agriculture. This includes:
- returning land to production; and
- cleaning up hazards to the environment or wildlife.
- Producer organizations.
- Agricultural non-profits.
- Building a perimeter fence, or making major fence repairs.
- Construction must follow best-management practices; read the Fencing to Contain Horses on Yukon Government Grazing Agreements Bulletin to learn more.
- Returning fields to production: You can redevelop farm fields covered in forest regrowth. This work must follow the Agriculture Land Development Guidelines, including:
- removing trees, shrubs, rocks and roots;
- preparing the land for seeding; and
- putting the field into production.
- Cleaning up land: Removal of:
- old fences;
- garbage piles; and
- old wood piles by chipping, or mulching.
