Iowa Land Values Update - 2021 Quarter 4

Published on Jan 11, 2022 by Ashley Poduska

Peoples Company tracks agricultural auctions across the state of Iowa. From this data, we calculate the average Dollar per CSR2 point ($/CSR2) for sales of tracts with greater than 85% tillable land. Additionally, these tracts are largely unimproved or include minimal improvement contribution.

It’s safe to say that Iowa has seen more than a couple auctions this quarter.  Q4 2021 brought 584 agricultural tracts to auction, selling 61,989.37 acres.  This is up significantly from last quarter’s 351 tracts, and even up from 2016’s busy Q4 of 420 tracts.  The average dollar per acre this quarter was $12,289, with an average dollar per tillable acre of $13,568.09 and an average dollar per CSR2 of $169.61.
