Experts in the Field of Farmland Values and Rental Rates

Since 1978, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has annually published a farm real estate market survey to monitor trends in farmland values and rental rates. Drylands and irrigated crop land, as well as pasture and cow-calf pair rental rates are included. The survey reflects values as of Feb. 1. Preliminary results typically are available in early March and final results in midsummer.

Jim Jansen, now an extension educator in Cedar and Know County, first began working on the survey while studying with agricultural economist Bruce Johnson, the survey's long-time author. He and Roger Wilson, a farm management budget analyst in agricultural economics, took over the survey after Johnson's retirement.
