  • Lang, Markus
  • Saghaian, Sayed


This paper explores the effects of increasing energy production in North Dakota on cropland rents from 2009 to 2011. Results show a small negative impact of natural gas production revenue on average per acre rents. While small, the impact increased steadily over the three year period.
