Missouri Cropland Values Per Acre July 2016

The average price per acre for Missouri farmland in July 2016 is $4677 per acre for cropland rated as “GOOD”, $3669 per acre for cropland rated as “AVERAGE” and $2758 per acre for cropland rated as “POOR”

Farmland prices across the Midwest have been declining in recent months on low commodity prices due to record harvests for the last 3 years and declining farm income but have been held up by low interest rates and high demand for safe investments.  Farmland values typically track with commodity prices and have a direct correlation with the assets ability to produce income.  Tillable farmland acres are the most valuable acres outside of development land while pastureland comes in next in terms of value followed by timber land and recreational land which is often purchased by hunters.
