18 January 2023, US: Recent farmland transaction data helps growers understand the potential market value of land they’re considering purchasing, refinancing, or selling.
FBN®‘s state- and regionally-specific land values reporting provides timely, actionable transaction data to growers on a regular basis using the more relevant land value metric of $/plantable acre rather than the more common $/gross acre. This value helps farmers better assess the potential ROI of a parcel of land they may be considering.

FBN Farmland Value Data Collection and Analysis Process
To create these analyses, the FBN data science team first collects and analyzes publicly-available data about farmland real estate transactions. Representative sales are selected from recent transactions with approximately average soil productivity for the region.
Next, the team enhances the basic transaction data with estimated plantable/tillable acreage to report sale value in terms of $/plantable acre. This $/plantable acre metric enables a fairer comparison of land values across farm properties which may have different amounts of non-plantable acreages like forest or wetland.
Excluded from these assessments are farmland sales in which buildings and/or urban development potential may contribute substantially to the sale price.
