Iowa Land Values Update - 2022 Quarter 3

October 5, 2022 - 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.

2022 Quarter 3 Auction Data:
Tracts Sold: 277
Acres Sold: 30,143
Average $/Acre: $12,574
Average $/Tillable Acre: $14,248
Average $/CSR2: $181

Prices and auction volume dropped a bit in Quarter 3 2022. We saw 277 tracts sell in Iowa this quarter which is down 6% from Q2. The average $/CSR2 is down 3% from Q2 2022 but remained up 4% from Q1 and up 16% from Q3 2021.

The high dollar per acre sale in Quarter 3 was a Sioux County 80.29-acre cropland farm which brought $26,000 per acre or $292/CSR2.
