Farm tenants and land owners are invited to Iowa State University Extension and Outreach farmland leasing meetings during July and August. The 3-hour workshops are designed to assist landowners, tenants and other agri-business professionals with current issues related to farmland ownership, management and leasing agreements.
Results from the most recent survey of farmland rental rates conducted by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach showed that the average estimated cash rent for corn and soybean land in the state for 2013 was $270 per acre, an increase of $18 per acre or 7 percent from last year.
The 2013 Iowa Farm Custom Rate Survey is now available to download from the Extension Online Store or the Ag Decision Maker website as Information File A3-10, Iowa Farm Custom Rate Survey. Print copies will be available at county extension offices.
