The nationwide CRP cap is a moving target. In 2007 it sat somewhere around the neighborhood of 36million acres, an all-time high. There were almost 37million enrolled. Kansas had 3.25m acres. After that caps were lowered, grain prices soared for a bit, and acres were converted back. From 2008-2019 CRP acres everywhere dropped “a lot.” Kansas was down to about 2million as of 2018, and between ‘18-‘22 1.3million acres are set to expire. However, as I said earlier, the state enrolled close to 450,000 acres in this first open enrollment in years. Second only to Texas. There is expected to be another enrollment next year and if corn prices stay below $3 and wheat returns are below cost of production, it’s a safe bet there will be some acres ready to stay or go to grass. In this last farm bill they set the nationwide cap at 27million acres by 2023, up from 24m. The last time we sat at that level Kansas came in around 2.35m acres. In order to raise the ceiling they cut some cost sharing and maintenance monies along with quite a few county rates so they don’t actually have to spend more dollars, but hopefully they can still get back to max acres in the next few years and we finally see a little uptick. It won’t be 2007 again anytime soon, but there’s still going to be grass out there.
