From Staff Reports T AGRICULTURE •^Salina Journal Kansas farm income falls Average net farm income in Kansas drops to $39,197 By ROXANA HEGEMAN The Associated Press WICHITA — Plagued by drought and high energy prices, Kansas farmers saw their income plummet by 7.7 percent last year, with government money keeping many farms afloat, Kansas Farm Management Association said. In its annual income report, the agency said the average net farm income of the 2,083 farms in its databank was $39,197 in 2000. That is a drop from, the $42,488 net farm income of a year earlier Marty Albtight, agricultural economist and KFMA administrator, said in a news release that dry growing conditions and rising energy prices were key contributors to the decline. The 2000 income was down nearly 11 percent from the five- year average of $43,946. The average farm would not have broken even had it not been for federal bailouts. The typical Kansas farm received $45,614 in government payments in 2000. That represents 116 percent of net farm income. A year earlier, the average government payment was $47,056 per farm. Farm Income Average net income for Kansas farms: • 2000 $39,197 • 1999 42,488 • 1998 16,778 • 1997 59,352 • 1996 61,915 • 1995 22,353 • 1994 28,652 • 1993 38,170 • 1992 45,475 • 1991 25,887 Source: Kansas Farm Management Association In the past two years, Kansas farmers have received a huge chunk of their farm income from the government. In 1997, for example, the government payments accounted for $14,980 per farm. "Those payments are not only important to farmers — they are also important to rural Kansas," said Janet McPherson, market development director for the Kansas Wheat Growers Association. The snapshot of the typical Kansas fai<m drawn from the KFMA statistics shows the average farm production valued at $214,104 plus $45,614 in government payments. T SALINA PLANNING COMMISSION Commission gives OK to Caterpillar Foley Equipment Co. may build new facility . at 1-70 and North Ohio By NATE JENKINS The Salina Journal A possible sales and service facility for Caterpillar-brand equipment received approval Tuesday from the Salina Planning Commission. In approving plans for the new facility, the commission recommended annexation of the 19-acre tract it might be built upon and approved a change in zoning. The land is located southwest of the intersection of Interstate Highway 70 and North Ohio Street. Bill Moody of Wichita-based Foley Equipment Co., stressed after the meeting that building the facility is not a sure thing. The company does not yet own the land it might develop. "This is one of the hurdles, we had to complete," he said of the commission's approval. Foley Equipment currently has a facility at 529 N. Broad­ way Moody said it hasn't been decided whether a new facility would replace the current operation. Before approving the zoning change, plat aind annexation, the commission recommended designating the area near the interstate interchange as a primary growth area. That designation allows development to occur that meets city standards. Also, city annexation and connection to city utilities are required in primary growth areas. Development "of a possible Foley Equipment facility and other future development hinges on city water and sewer services being extended to the area. Such a project currently is in the works. Businesses that hook onto the water and sewer lines would help pay the cost of installing the lines. "The only issue at the North Ohio interchange is the utilities," said city Planning Director Dean Andrew, who caUed the interchange land, "a prime area for development."
