Iowa Land Value Survey Results

The 2011 Iowa Land Value Survey, directed by Michael Duffy, Iowa State University extension farm management specialist and professor of economics, is a topic of great interest. The 2011 land value survey covers one of the most remarkable years in Iowa land value history. 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.
