The Current Situation on Farmland Values and Ownership


  • Duffy, Michael

Despite strong farmer and investor demand, most land owners, especially aging farmers are reluctant to sell farmland. Generally, current land economic fundamentals are strong and highly volatile market conditions will influence farmland values and farm ownership trends.
