Farmland Spikes

Economists at the Kansas City Fed and bankers in the Tenth District report robust 4Q 2011 ag numbers.The Editors

“Farmland values soared higher, reaching all-time highs across much of the District in the fourth quarter.”
“Nonirrigated cropland values in the Tenth District jumped almost 9% during the last three months of 2011 and were 25% higher than year-ago levels.”
“This trend led ‘an increasing number of absentee landowners’ to put ‘their farms up for sale and attributed much of the auction activity to landowners seeking top-dollar prices.’”
