    I think it does. But- so many areas around country not over watered or flooded. Massive drought seems to hit more area & do more damage than more regional floods, imo. Even in flood areas- if guys have elevated ground, can sometimes avoid. Drought bigger production killer than floods & too much rain imo coupled with how droughts are so wide spread often times.

    I'm not a commercial ag farmer, but I talk to lots of people about things and read a ton. Crop prices under a lot of pressure for several reasons.... My take: 1. CRP acres dropped as mentioned. 2. crop technology has outpaced demand.... last year drought was terrible... basically didn't rain for nearly 3 months and a my neighbor STILL hit 200 bushel corn on his bottom. That's insane. 3. South America has brought a lot of acres online and can double crop. (ie Brazil has DOUBLED soybean production since 2008).

    Bowhunter all reasons above are correct but the reason for the tailspin in the last 30
    days is foreign trade and tariffs.

    It’s not enough to move the needle much.., if we do get a trade deal ... I think we’d see beans jump a lot

    A new 30 year CRP option is in the new farm bill. Also a strong emphasis on buffers and restored wetlands.

    you have a link with a good summary? I'm only finding abbreviated ones that don't talk about CRP.

    The 30 year CRP is the CLEAR program Sligh mentions a few posts up. Go to the Pheasant Forever website, visit the Newsroom link up top.

    Not 100% sure but the 30 CRP you are referring to may be a grassland reserve program that has been in past bills in some fashion.

    The farm bill is signed it adds more acres, some additional options, sounds like bonus payments and cost share will be reduced. Probably the end of large CRP fields, as 40% cost share may not entice landowners to pay 60% of the cost of the prep and seed.

    The only problem with this Formula is CRP must compete with cash rent, or only a few sportsman will sign up.

    Who will ever sign up in high cash rent counties??

    If we lose the big fields in ND, SD, MN, Iowa, Neb Texas etc...it will never hit the max acres.
