This is a situation I wish I was in. So since you asked, I would take it 
totally out of production and manage the land as wildlife habitat.
Let it revert back to it's original state, maybe build a pond or two, 
and allow it to heal on it's own.
I have read about gov. programs in the prarie states that will even pay 
you to do this. Get in touch with your local ag. dept. or maybe the 
state F&G. They could help you get on the right track.
IMHO  Good luck!
