The Department of Natural Resources requires agricultural farming services for land located at Banner Marsh State Fish and Wildlife Area. Lease #2377 is located in Fulton, Township 6 North, Range 5 East, Sections 27, 33 & 34, 4th P.M. The acreage for this farm lease is approximately 441.5 acres in 2018 and 118.6 acres in 2019 of land at Banner Marsh State Fish and Wildlife Area for agricultural purposes.
Many Department of Natural Resources owned or managed lands contain tillable acreage. These lands have the potential to generate revenue if used to grow agricultural products. It is the Department’s policy to minimize the use of such lands for agricultural production in favor of establishing annual or permanent wildlife habitats. However, the Department also recognizes that certain agricultural practices and farm income can provide needed resources for wildlife habitat, improving habitat diversity, developing cover and edge effect, and maintaining annual vegetative stages.
