Historical County Cropland Rental Rates

The tables of historic county cropland rental rates are presented in the accompanying "pdf" file that you can access by clicking here or on the icon above.

This file shows average county cropland cash rental rates for years prior to those shown in Information File Farmland Cash Rental Rate Survey. When the survey first began, it was conducted on a regional rather than statewide basis, and a few regions began earlier than others. This is the reason why rental rates records go farther back for some counties.
