We get many questions on the differences between Iowa's CSR and the new CSR2 especially as it relates to farmland values in Iowa. There is no easy answer, and in some cases there is no answer at all. Today its necessary to question what you are looking at because some will use a CSR2 number but refer to it as CSR. CSR and CSR2 do have some important differences that you should know if you are buying or selling farmland in Iowa.
Rather than re-write the entire narrative Iowa State University released a report that can help you understate the differences that you can download right here by clicking the link The Difference Between CSR and CSR2
You can also download this report from Wallace Farmer CSR and CSR2 by Wallace Farmer
If you are interested in looking up your own CSR and CSR2 you can do it through the Web Soil Survey website as well, you'll find a tutorial when you click the link.
