Some Of The Best Farmland In Calhoun County

According to the USDA approximately 40% or about 9,000 acres are currently devoted to agriculture. Roughly 10% is under irrigation. The primary crops gown are corn, soybeans and wheat. Currently there is one dairy operation and two operations that feed cattle.

There are approximately 425 acres enrolled in CRP. CRP is a program administered by the Farm Service Agency. CRP removes cropland from production and protects topsoil from erosions and provides wildlife habitat. By reducing water runoff and sedimentation, it helps to protect groundwater and surface water.
