Jefferson, Iowa― Recent survey results released by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach found that 55% of Iowa’s farmland is rented, mostly by cash rent arrangement. The average 2018 cash rental rates have stabilized at $222 per tillable acre after a decline of nearly 19% from the 2013 peak.  However, determining a fair cash rental rate for 2019 could prove challenging as tenant operators face uncertainty of farm profitability, crop price outlook as well as potential farm bill provisions for next year’s crops.

It is important to keep stored grain as cool as we go into the spring and summer months.  Some warming of stored grain may have already occurred during warmer weather and with the sun shining on the south side of grain bins.

With the weather forecast for Friday through next Tuesday to have highs in the 30s and low 40s with lows in the 20s, this may be the last good time to completely aerate your stored grain before warmer spring weather arrives.
