Waterfowl Crop Damage Prevention Program

The intention of the Waterfowl Crop Damage Prevention Program is to assist agricultural producers in reducing damage to crops caused by waterfowl during fall migration. Seven years ago, we began offering scare cannons free of charge to Counties and Municipal Districts, enabling them to incorporate this equipment into their equipment rental programs. This has greatly improved efficiency, placing cannons much closer to end users. In 2019/20, we continued to work with producers as well as counties and municipal districts to ensure that scare cannons were available where needed for waterfowl crop damage prevention. We updated the ACA website to identify where scare cannons are available for loan and suggested prevention strategies to reduce crop damage.
