2021 Mid-South Land Values Report Now Available

A 93-page report on Land Values in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee is now available courtesy of the Mid-South Chapter of the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers.

 This is the fourth year the Mid-South Land Values and Lease Trends Report has been issued, and it continues the Chapter’s goal to be the premier information center for all rural and farm landowners within the Mid-South.

“The report highlights current trends with farmland values, sales, and rents across Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi and parts of western Tennessee,” said Doug Hartz, AFM, President of the Mid-South Chapter of the ASFMRA. “Within this publication, there are editorials covering timber, broiler construction cost, cattle, drones, deer health, quail and turkey habitat, agricultural lending, and environmental due diligence.”

“The availability of good, top-quality investment grade farmland continues to be limited: this is a continuing trend over the past few years. Overall, farmland prices remain steady and, in many cases, have increased since the last publication,” said Tyler Mullins, ARA, Land Trends Publication Chair.

 It is important to remember this publication is an overall view of the Mid-South farmland market and should be used as a general source of information.  We encourage you to visit with appropriate land professional before embarking on important decisions that involve your farm property.
