Farmland value reaches historic $8,716 statewide average

Land Value Survey

Average Iowa farmland value is estimated to be $8,716 per acre, an increase of 5.1 percent from 2012, according to results of the Iowa Land Value Survey. Values increased in 2013 for the fourth year in a row and achieved historic peaks.

“The 2013 land value survey shows a market in flux, with strong and weak price sales occurring at the same time,” said Michael Duffy, Iowa State economics professor and extension farm management economist who conducts the survey.
