2018 Cash Rental Rates in Missouri

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) reports that 35 percent of Missouri farmland is rented. That means that about 9.8 million acres of Missouri agricultural land is rented. To help both landowners and farmers, the University of Missouri has periodically surveyed landowners and farmers to detect trends in rental rates. The latest survey was taken in the summer of 2018.
