As a result of falling commodity prices, farmers have been looking at different avenues to profit from marginal land. One of these is to restore wetlands and place them in the state and federal wetland banking system. These systems allow landowners to restore agricultural land to its presettlement condition and receive compensation through the sale of wetland credits. The credits are generated through the restoration of previously converted wetland and surrounding upland buffer. The credits are sold to public and private entities that impact wetlands and are required to mitigate those impacts through the Clean Water Act (CWA) and Wetland Conservation Act (WCA).
