Description
An interview based survey of farm landowners in the south east corner of Saskatchewan was undertaken to evaluate the provision of wildlife habitat by agriculture. Producers were asked to provide management information regarding a piece of their land that was managed as a unit. Within the past ten years there has been a reduction in the conversion of remaining native land to crop land, an increase in conversation of annual crop land to perennial cover crops, an increase in the use of minimum disturbance (no-till) farming, and a decrease in the use of fire on stubble fields and sloughs. Many producers in the area often stated economic reasons for their current land use division. Even ecological reasons (productive capacity of the soil, poor cropping soil, light soil etc.) often had an economic basis. If the land was not productive enough, a management scheme with lower input costs would be adopted. This was commonly demonstrated in this survey by the conversion of marginal land to tame forages. Producers within this region seem willing to adopt farming practices that connect economic sustainability with environmental responsibility. This survey is part of an-ongoing study of the region.
