A new study of historical land use patterns across seven Midwestern states – including Illinois – reveals little net movement of habitat to cropland and negligible impact on land use even by federal program crops or those covered by crop insurance.
The study, commissioned by seven Midwestern state Farm Bureaus, was conducted by Decision Innovation Solutions (DIS) of Urbandale, Iowa. The analysis used a variety of analytical techniques and tools. Datasets for the years 2007 through 2012 served as the point of reference.
