Farmland Values Rise in the Midwest for the First Time Since 2014 | Successful Farming
Farmland Values Rise in the Midwest for the First Time Since 2014 | Successful Farming: The longest decline in farmland values in the Midwest since the agricultural crisis of the mid-1980s is over. Ag bankers surveyed by the Chicago Fed report a 1% rise in “good” farmland values in 2017, the first annual increase in values in three years. During the ag crisis, Midwest land values also fell for three years, from 1984 to 1986.
