Strong demand to rent farmland continues PDF Print E-mail

Farm profits remained strong in 2013, keeping the demand for land leases steady, according to Farmers National Company, the nation's leading farm and ranch real estate company in the country. Despite lower commodity prices and decreased gross incomes, farm profitability remains good due in part to a 30 percent drop in fertilizer prices since 2012 and carryover grain sales from the previous crop year.
"Demand for high quality property is keeping both land values and rental rates strong," said David Englund, AFM, executive vice president of farm and ranch management of Farmers National Company. "Overall, lease rates are higher on quality land if the land was rented below market in 2013, but rates across the board are mostly level. Fertilizer costs are expected to drop further in 2014, which will help farmers remain profitable."
The desire of farm owners to expand existing operations is leading to highly aggressive sales activity and keeping the demand for farmland strong. In addition, there has been a trend of young people coming back to family farm operations prompting additional demand for land.

PERRYSBURG - More than 250 agricultural retailers and stakeholders from the Ohio, Indiana and Michigan agriculture communities attended the launch of the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Certification program Tuesday in Perrysburg, Ohio. The voluntary program is geared toward the long-term improvement of Lake Erie's water quality by applying the 4R principles.
The 4R approach - using the Right Nutrient Source at the Right Rate and Right Time in the Right Place - serves as the guideline for the new certification program, which will be administered in the tri-state area by the Ohio AgriBusiness Association on behalf of the Nutrient Stewardship Council.
"The program has several features that will make it very effective in reducing the problems with algae blooms in Lake Erie," said Bill Stanley, assistant director of The Nature Conservancy in Ohio and a member of the Nutrient Stewardship Advisory Committee.  "Most important are a set of scientifically rigorous standards developed with industry and academic involvement, as well as independent, third-party audits to ensure that those standards are followed."
