The nation’s grassland has important benefits, such as providing land for grazing, & wildlife habitat for at-risk species. However, over the past 300 years, half of the grassland has been converted to cropland. Such conversions result in increased spending on fed. farm programs, such as crop insurance. This report examines: (1) the extent of grassland conversions to cropland & the cost of farm program payments for these newly converted cropland acres; (2) the importance of farm program payments vs. other factors in producers’ decisions to convert grassland to cropland; & (3) any impact the Sodbuster conservation provision -- which places soil erosion standards on certain converted land -- has had on limiting grassland conversions.
