### Introduction

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (USDA/NASS) conducts a survey of farm real estate values each year and calculates the average value per acre for each state. The following tables show these values for Missouri, neighboring states and the 48 contiguous states.
