This fact sheet summarizes information on crops, dairy, farmland sales, and farmland values for the South Central District in Wisconsin between 1990 and 2002. It is meant as a companion piece to more extensive data available on the Wisconsin Land Use Data CD and the PATS website. The dynamics in the crop sector in this district showed a slight increase in total acres of major crops with significant increases in acres of soybeans and losses in acres of forage crops. The dairy industry experienced greater losses in the South Central District than it did in the state as a whole. While farmland values and farmland conversion rates varied between counties, the average value of farmland was relatively high throughout the district.
