Northern Plains 2017 USDA NASS Land Values

Posted on: Sep 3, 2017

Each year the United States Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service releases their Land Values Summary. As part of the summary, they report values per acre of farm real estate, cropland, cropland split into irrigated and non-irrigated where applicable, pastureland, and the value of farmland and buildings.

The report divides the country into economic regions: Northeast, Lake States, Corn Belt, Northern Plains, Appalachian, Southeast, Delta States, Southern Plains, Mountain, and Pacific.

 

Northern Plains

The Northern Plains region includes Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Values of farm real estate climbed from $1,960 per acre in 2013 to $2,200 per acre in 2017. However, the 2017 figure represents a 1.8% decrease from 2016.

Cropland values decreased more in the Northern Plains region than in any other region in the country. The 2017 average value of $2,830 per acre represented a 4.4% decrease from 2016. The 2016 figure was also a decrease from the previous year, in which the value was $3,130, the high mark during the 2013 to 2017 period.
