Downward Pressures on 2016 and 2017 Cash Rents


Cash rents on professionally-managed farmland decreased in 2016. In 2017, pressures to lower cash rents will intensify if commodity prices do not increase.

The 2016 cash rents for “average” farmland is a projection. Data from the Illinois Society of Professional Farm Mangers and Rural Appraisers (Illinois Society) and the U.S. Department of Agricultural are used in preparing this table.
