2012 Iowa Land Values

Iowa State University just released the 2012 Land Value survey.

78% of farm land bought in 2012 was purchased by existing farmers.  18% by investors.

The northwest and north parts of the state have the highest priced land.  Some land vales there increased by 30% over 2011.

Take a look at each of the maps on this web site for interesting information about land prices and trends.

Look at the PowerPoint slide show for another perspective.
