Average 2012 cash rent statistics released. What's in store for 2013?

Although producers may be focused on harvest activities, landlords are likely busy setting land rental prices for the 2013 growing year. The National Agricultural Statistics Service released average 2012 county cash rent statistics earlier this month.

Dr. Gary Schnitkey, University of Illinois Agricultural Economist, recently wrote an article, posted on the farmdocDAILY website, summarizing 2012 cash rents by county. This article also presents the results of an Illinois Professional Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers survey of projected 2013 cash rents according to land productivity. A podcast of an interview in which Dr. Schnitkey discusses this article is also available.
