How is farmland valued?

According to Kansas State Law, farmland is valued according to its current use. Yearly, the Property Valuation Department in Topeka issues values for each soil mapping unit in the county and these values are applied to your land by the county appraiser. The county appraiser does the yearly review to see if you have made any changes in your farming practices (ex: Flood has one to sprinkled or dry land to irrigated, etc...). The operator or owner of the land is requested to fill out an agriculture use form whenever there is a change.
