Plastina co-authors article for Journal of the ASFMRA

Associate Professor Alejandro Plastina co-authored an article for the 2024 Journal of the ASFMRA (American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers). Plastina wrote "By How Much Can Appraised Farm Values Differ Across Appraisers?" with Wendong Zhang of Cornell and Wendiam Sawadgo of Auburn University. The article compares 54 appraisal reports, completed by nine Certified General Appraisers for three Iowa farms at two points in time (2019 and 2020), to evaluate the variability of appraised values and the causes.
