Effective January 1, 2012, “residential land” also includes two acres or less of land on which a residential improvement is located and where the improvement is not an integral part of an agricultural operation conducted on the land. Prior to House Bill 1146, land associated with a residential improvement on property classified as agricultural was valued according to the agricultural use of the property as a whole, regardless of the level of occupant participation.
Agricultural land is valued by capitalizing the lessor’s net income into an indication of value using the statutory capitalization rate. For details on agricultural land valuation, for information on forest agricultural classification, or to download a questionnaire to request agricultural classification of your property, please see the links below.

A federal incentive identified in the Monarch Butterfly Habitat Development Project report (USDS NRCS, 2015), the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) contributes to the conservation of pollinator species (Stine et al., 2015).
Administered with the support of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) for conservation planning and implementation, the program is available to landowners whose farmland is located in environmentally vulnerable areas (highly eroded soils, wetlands or streamsides) (Stine et al., 2015). The CRP provides direct financial support for the adoption of conservation practices, including the establishment of pollinator habitat under the CP-42-Pollinator Habitat Initiative.

Tim Black’s cell phone rings, signaling the time to reverse the sprinklers that spit water across a pie-shaped section of pasture that will provide grass for his cattle.
For decades, the Texas Panhandle was green with cotton, corn and wheat. Wells drew 1,000 gallons (3,785 liters) per minute from the seemingly bottomless Ogallala aquifer, allowing farmers to thrive despite frequent dry spells and summer heat.
But now farmers face a difficult reckoning. The groundwater that sustained livelihoods for generations is disappearing, which has created another problem in the southern plains: when there is not enough rain or groundwater to germinate crops, the soil can blow away, just as it did during the Dust Bowl of the 1930s.
His grandfather could reach the water with a post hole digger. Now, Black is lucky to draw 50 gallons (189 liters) per minute from high-pressure wells, some nearly 400 feet (122 meters) deep. He buys bottled water for his family because the well water is salty.

There is a firm line between where the birds might be and where they most certainly are not. On one side stretches a field of native prairie grasses: wheatgrass, andropogon gerardii, sorghastrum nutans and false sunflowers. On the other side, a long, slight rise of closely cropped soybean stubble unfurls toward the blue horizon. It’s hard to imagine much more than a green June beetle trying to survive there.
I grab my shotgun and pick up the pace. We’re nearing the end of the field, and as the pheasants rise they move in waves: the first three birds closest to the dogs, then another half dozen darting from the woolly grasses, the long feathers of the male pheasants making ripples like the tail of a kite as they head skyward.
Since then he has given his heart, sweat and wealth to make the farm a habitat where pheasants can thrive. He has converted corn and soybean fields to large plots of native grasses and weeds with seed, planted thousands of trees and set aside acres for pollinator meadows. “I enjoy working in the habitat as much as I enjoy hunting,” he says.
