AGRICULTURAL LAND & SALES MANAGEMENT
The goal is to make agricultural land available in a range
of parcel sizes as dictated by regional and local demand for land sales,
leases, and permits as funding allows.
An inventory of unsold lands classified for agriculture is maintained for future sales. Prior to offering land for sale, the Agricultural Land and Contract Management Section reviews parcels for legal survey and status, provides for appraisal, conducts Title 38.945 notice, formulates terms and conditions of sale, and prepare land sale and lease contracts. After sale or lease, this section monitors contract holders for compliance with their contractual requirements including farm conservation plans and development requirements annually.

MANURE MANAGEMENTGood Agricultural Practices and animal feeding operations should be based on best practices in the handling of animal manure. Many informational resources, technical assistance, and loans and grants are available to farmers around the country and specifically in Alaska. The USDA Natural Resource and Conservation Service is the lead agency for assisting working farms in these matters. Additionally we are providinga number of Internet links to other North American sites with good information on handling practices of manure. If you are in need of assistance, the Division strongly encourages you to access these resources so that our farming practices in Alaska are environmentally responsible. Please contact us if we can provide further information.
