Conservation Reserve Program in South Dakota: Major Findings from 2007 Survey of South Dakota CRP Respondents
AbstractThis report contains the major findings from a survey of South Dakota CRP contract holders which is a major component of an SDSU research project on the ?Impact of CRP (Conservation Reserve Program) Acres in South Dakota Being Put Back Into Production.? The major objectives of the research are: 1) to estimate the number of acres of CRP land that are likely to revert back to crop production, their location, and estimated crop mix on those acres; and 2) to determine the main factors that influence post-CRP land use decisions. The primary data source for examining these objectives is a survey completed by 753 CRP contract holders in South Dakota. Additional information can also be found in a companion report on the economic impact of post-CRP land use changes in South Dakota using IMPLAN analysis.
