The values below summarize rental rates reported to Iowa State University Extension by Iowa tenants, farm owners, and farm managers. Information was collected with the 2008 farmland cash rental rate survey.

Individual rental rates will vary according to the age, condition, size, location, and efficiency of the building being rented. The survey assumed that tenants would pay the cost of utilities. No information was received for types of buildings not listed below.
