Real midwest farmer questions today:
Is there any consistently measureable difference in corn/bean yields between a 100 acre field with a CSR2 number of 82 and a similar sized field just down the road with a CSR2 of 88?
If so, how much do the numbers themselves influence local farm rental/sales rates?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If everything is equal otherwise the CSR 88 farm would be worth $600+ more than the 82CSR, because buyers worship at the CSR alter, valuing it at +$100 per point.
Not to take anything away from the rating system, but world record yields have been raised on 73 CSR farms.
So you are saying, if I understand you correctly, the CSR2 numbers when they are close are mostly about farm resale value, but in practice (i.e. The actual yield/acre) the differences are not that important. Correct?
If so, there must also not be much of a local rental rate difference between like farmland with small (i.e. 82 compared to 88) CSR2 differences. Do I have that right too?
Hey Packard, I don`t think that there`d be much if any difference in rent between 82 and 88. 20,30 bucks, they`d give the difference to seal the deal
