The 2013 Iowa Farmland Prices Survey from Iowa State University was released yesterday and we have begun the task of updating the county pages on our website to reflect the new numbers.

This years survey shows us about what we were expecting, a gain of 5.1% or $420 acres statewide.  That’s a positive for the land market.  There are still many strong factors influencing farmland prices, but they are competing with lower commodity prices and the lack of a Farm Bill this year.

I have attached all of the documents below, you can find information on each and every county and compare it with last year’s prices by whole dollar number or percentage increase or decrease from 2012.

This year is the first time we’ve seen decreases at least since 2009.  This year, mostly in northwest Iowa we are seeing individual counties as well as the NW crop reporting district with negative gains.

Northwest Iowa Crop District Average Price Per Acre $10,960 per acre, down 3.9%

North Central Iowa Crop District Average Price Per Acre $9,818, up 2.7%
