    Improving farm rental arrangements in Iowa

    Get PDF
    Over one-half of Iowa\u27s farmers rent part or all of the land they operate, and more than one-half of the state\u27s farm land is rented. Interests of tenants and land owners are largely complementary. Each needs the other\u27s resources as well as his own to operate a farm successfully. Rental arrangements provide the means for landlords and tenants to share mutual benefits from the joint use of each other\u27s resources. Many of Iowa\u27s landlords and tenants are constantly searching for rental practices to overcome new as well as old tenancy problems. Most of these problems center around determining rent, improving farms, trying new farming practices, getting landlords and tenants together who complement each other\u27s interests and resources, and complying with Iowa\u27s laws and customs of leasing

    Factors affecting farmland values in the United States

    Get PDF
    Farmland value has more than quadrupled since 1940. Before the early 1950\u27s, however, changes in farmland value had been closely related to changes in farm product prices and net farm income. But since that time, farmland value has increased substantially without a corresponding rise in net farm income. This widening spread between farmland values and net farm income created the interest for this study. Our major objective was to identify the principal factors affecting farmland value and to estimate the effect of these variables. To accomplish this objective, we developed hypotheses to explain the changes in farmland value that included the effect of expected net farm income, government farm‚ÄĒprogram payments, expected capital gains, technological advance, farm enlargement, the number of voluntary transfers of farmland and an in creasing demand for land from a growing population
