2013 Iowa Cash Rent Survey

http://www.extension.iastate.edu/agdm/wholefarm/pdf/c2-10.pdf

 

Gives the breakout on rent/bushel, rent/CSR point and so forth.

 

Note that the average rent for any quality of ground in any county can vary a lot from the high and low.  There was some $500 plus land rented, but nothing remotely like that on a county average.

 

It's hard to know how much credence to give a report like this.  It's probably a small sample.  It's voluntary so that restricts it even more - some would not tell the other side of their own face what they pay in rent and some will make up any number they like.

 

On the whole, it's probably not too far off for approximation work.
