How Much Should You Pay for a Farmland Lease?

How much should I charge or pay for farmland is a common question for landowners and operators. When these two parties discuss the price for the year ahead, it can be challenging to determine a “fair price” for a farm’s lease. However, if you can understand the average rates around nearby parcels and what similar land has gone for in the past, you can have a good starting point. 

CIBO’s platform provides unbiased lease values across the US. Using this tool, landowners and operators can find a range of rates from a national down to a parcel level. At CIBO, we calculate lease value by analyzing complex interactions between weather, soil, and widely accepted land management methods. This data helps farmers and land managers learn how different fields might perform in different agro-ecological conditions when subjected to typical regional farming systems and are reflected in the lease scores.
