Iowa's September Farmland Sales Summary

By Jason Smith, CAI Auctioneer | Land Broker | Published October 16, 2019

Iowa Farmland Sales Volume for 80% Tillable Farms

Farmland Prices in Iowa For September 2019

Similar to our August report on farmland sales, prices have continued to remain on a steady track. In September, tillable land values were sitting above the trend line and continue to look positive in terms of future growth into October!

 

Year-to-date trends and month-long trends can be found in the graphs below.

 

Average Price Per CSR2 Point for Iowa Farmland

The average price per CSR2 point in September 2019 saw a slight decrease from the month of August to $104.31, across all 80% tillable farms sold at auction in Iowa.

The CSR2 point rating is a measure of the soil's productivity out of a scale of 100. It is important to remember that monthly variations depend on the quality of farms sold that month. A longer period of time such as six months to a year is the best representation of the price per CSR2 point.
