2019 Mid-South Land Values Report Now Available

(Jonesboro, AR, February 26, 2019) A comprehensive look at farmland values and agricultural property lease rates is now available through members of the Mid-South Chapter of the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers.

The 76-page 2019 Mid-South Land Values and Lease Trends Report is a compilation of information gathered by members of the ASFMRA Chapter. “The Report is divided into four separate sections with region-specific information for Arkansas, Louisiana, Western Mississippi and Western Tennessee” says Bill Shannon, AFM, Farmers National Company, past president of the Chapter and overall project chair for the publication. “The members have contributed sales and lease trends information from their specific areas of influence. There are also informational articles ranging from the status of the poultry and forestry industries in the area as well as a complete roster of Chapter members.”

Stacey Gillison, AFM, Agriworld, Inc., and current Chapter President notes “This is the second year the Chapter has compiled and published the information. It’s great data for anyone involved with agriculture as well as those who are interested in Mid-South land trends. It’s a handy reference but not a basis for making individual land decisions. I encourage you to contact a qualified land professional listed in our book when making such an important and lasting decision.”

Copies of the book are available from Mid-South Chapter members or by contacting Jeffrey Hignight, AFM, ALC, Glaub Farm Management, Jonesboro, AR. He can be contacted at or 870-972-6996. Copies can also be ordered online at for $10 per copy.
