Farmland Leasing Meetings in July/August

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is conducting farmland leasing meetings during July and August 2022. Meetings are coordinated by county ISU Extension and Outreach offices.

The discussion will focus on various methods to determine a fair 2023 cash rental rate and the importance of good tenant/landlord communications. In addition, a brief economic outlook will be presented along with a look at farmland prices. According the Cash Rental Rates for Iowa – 2022 Survey released in mid-May, the average 2022 cash rent statewide is $256 per tillable acre, a slight increase from $232 in 2021. Average cash rents have increased slightly over the past 4 years.

The Mahaska County/ Oskaloosa meeting site will be Tuesday July 26 beginning at 6 pm with doors open at 5 pm. This meeting will be at the Mahaska County Extension office, 212 North I Street Oskaloosa. The meeting will last until approximately 8:30 pm and will be facilitated by Charles Brown, Farm Management Specialist, with ISU Extension and Outreach.

Pre-registration is required and a $20 per individual fee is payable at the door. Participants will receive a 100-page booklet and meeting handouts designed to assist landowners, tenants and other agri-business professionals with issues related to farmland ownership, management and leasing arrangements.
