2019 ISU Land Value Survey

2019 ISU Land Value Survey
The 2019 ISU Land Value Survey shows a 2.3 percent increase in average Iowa farmland values from November 2018 to November 2019. The average statewide value of an acre of farmland is now estimated at $7,432. This modest increase, which barely exceeds the pace of inflation, is the second rise over the past six years, but still represents a 15 percent decrease from the 2013 peak in nominal land values, or a 23 percent drop in inflation-adjusted values.
