Looking Ahead Commentary Land Values and Leasing Spring 2022

There has never been a better time to sell farmland than right now due to the high commodity prices supporting the land market with double digit gains in many areas especially for top quality land. There have been prices in the $15,000 – $20,000/acre range in some areas but also some sales that are not near that strong. It is the hardest time ever to appraise land since it is so uncertain. WIth that said it is also the best time to rent your land also but unfortunately many landowners are missing out and going to miss out in 2023 unless they get some help. It isn’t all amount of rent but being fair to all and even though fertilizer prices are high we can’t let the land get behind in fertility. Many are that way already but many will get worse. We are advocates on doing the right thing and all will work out well. We almost exclusively use flexible cash rents which really paid off in 2021 and should do so again in 2022 and beyond. We’d love to get as many people on this path of steardship and fairness.
