Fillmore land rent continues upward trend!


By Jerrold Tesmer

Posted in All Agriculture

While preparing for the Land Rent Workshops held last month, I looked at average increase in Fillmore County land rent. From 1996-2007 the average increase was $2.69/ acre/year, or about the rate of inflation. Since 2008, the increase has averaged $21.75/acre/year or about 10 percent. I question whether a 10 percent yearly increase is sustainable!

Like many government agencies facing a budget crunch, FSA is no longer sending out newsletters. That required a change in how we distributed the land rent survey. I would like to thank those that did respond! We had slightly fewer responses this year with 101 usable parcels which totaled 10,174 tillable acres.

In the survey, I asked for both the 2012 actual rent paid and a 2013 projected price per acre. The average rent reported paid in 2012 was $210.94 per tillable acre, very close to the $210.00 projected in last year’s survey. Rent for 2013 is projected at $234.25 per acre. We also had a huge range, from $59 - $450 per acre.

This is the seventeenth consecutive year for the Fillmore County Land Rent Survey. In twelve of those years the actual rent reported in the following years survey was higher than projected, in five years it was less than projected.
