The sale prices for good cropland in rural America continue upward, reaching new high points in many states. Farmers National Company says the â€œrecordâ€ sale prices continue to capture headlines, but there has generally been continued strength in the land market, with good cropland attracting the most attention from buyers. â€œThe upcoming months will set the trend in land prices,â€ says Randy Dickhut, senior vice president of real estate operations at Farmers National. Recently, good cropland in Iowa sold above $25,000 per acre, $15,000 per acre in South Dakota, and $12,000 an acre in North Dakota. Further east, Illinois had land sales above $21,000 an acre, Indiana at $17,000 an acre, and Ohio has seen $16,000 per acre. Land sales in Nebraska were above $13,500 per acre, $14,500 in Missouri, and more than $8,000 in Kansas. Farmers National will be watching before and after this yearâ€™s harvest to gauge the future land market.
