How do cash rent/acre compare between organic and nonorganic acres for corn, soybean and wheat production? My Missouri extension agents don't know since organic crop production is still pretty limited in Central Missouri.

Hello, since there are so many variables that affect land rental costs, I'm afraid we don't have the specific information you are seeking.

I suggest you contact a regional organic agriculture organization such as Midwest Organic & Sustainable Education Service (MOSES) 888-551-4769

or, the Mid-America Organic Association 660-672-8515 or 573-619-9139

Good luck!
