2010 Agriculture Cash Rent Data for NW Ohio Released

The following was developed and compiled through great research conducted by Barry Ward, Ohio State University Extension , Production Business Management.

Ohio is a diverse state agriculturally and cropland values and cash rents vary tremendously across the state. Generally speaking, western Ohio cropland values and cash rents differ a fair amount from eastern Ohio cropland values and cash rents. This is due in part to one of any number of factors including land productivity and potential crop return, variability of crop return, field size, field shape, drainage, population, and ultimately the supply and demand of rented cropland in an area.

Ohio cropland values show signs of remaining stable to falling slightly in 2010 while this survey indicates cash rent levels will see little change in 2010. According to the Western Ohio Cropland Values and Cash Rents Survey bare cropland values are expected to decrease from 0.1% to 3.1% in 2010 depending on the region and land class. Cash rents are expected to range from a decrease of 1.5% to an increase of 3.19% depending on the region and land class.

Ninety-five surveys were completed, analyzed and summarized. Respondents were asked to give responses based on 3 classes of land in their area; “top” producing land, “average” producing land and “poor” producing land.

Tables show the average (Avg) (simple average) of each row, standard deviation (Std) of the data for that measure (measure of variability), average plus one standard deviation (Avg + 1 Std), and average minus one standard deviation (Avg – 1 Std). These latter two numbers reported indicate a range within which about two-thirds of the responses in the data for that measure will fall.

Ohio Farmland Cash Rent for 2009

Barry Ward, Ohio State University’s Leader in Production Business Management, has very recently released data for Ohio farmland cash rent.  Ward reports that Ohio cropland values are falling, with cash rents leveling off to slightly up.  Data is taken from the “Ohio Cropland Values and Cash Rents” survey, which is conducted annually. Surveyed groups include farm managers, rural appraisers, agricultural lenders, OSU Extension Educators, farmers, and Farm Service Agency personnel. Van Wert County is considered northwest Ohio, so preliminary results shown below are for Northwest Ohio (NW Results).

The table shows the simple average of the data  (Avg), as well as the standard deviation (Std) of the data for that measure. In addition, the table also shows the average plus one standard deviation (Avg+Std), and average minus one standard deviation (Avg-Std). These latter two numbers reported indicate a range within which about two-thirds of the responses in the data for that measure will fall.

The full report for Ohio is available in the February, 2009 Ohio Ag Manager Newsletter:
