2016 Cash Rent Survey - Cash rental rates presented are the result of a survey of farmers, landowners, agricultural lenders, real estate brokers, and professional farm manners.
Iowa Land Value Survey - The Iowa Land Value Survey, directed by Michael Duffy, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Farm Management Specialist and professor of economics, is a topic of great interest. The survey has been conducted annually since 1941, and is the only statewide survey that collects information on land values in each of Iowa's 99 counties.
