Iowa cropland value hits new record $8,750 an acre

Aug. 5, 2014 | 0 comments

DES MOINES, IA (AP)

The value of farmland in Iowa is up again this year, reaching a new high at a time when many observers expect values to drop due to falling commodity prices.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in a new report released Friday the average value of an acre of cropland in Iowa rose 9.4 percent from a year ago to a record $8,750.

The value of farm real estate — a measurement of the value of all land and buildings on farms — increased 10.4 percent to $8,500 an acre. Iowa leads the nation in the value of farmland and buildings with a total value of $235.6 billion. That's up nearly 18 percent.

The annual report is based on producer surveys completed in the first two weeks of June.
