160 Acres M/L

Listing #14190



Opportunity to own 160 acres m/l of high quality Kossuth County farmland with newer tile and a potential acreage site. There are currently 151.31 acres m/l in production with a CSR2 of 78. This farm is well drained with new tile added in 2012 and another 14,200 ft. installed in 2016 in addition to the existing private and county tile in Joint Drainage District 2. The acreage site consists of 2.87 acres and includes two existing wells (one with a working pump) along with a 32 ft. by 45 ft. utility building built in 1973. If a new Buyer would prefer to clear the building site to farm, the high quality soil types of Nicollet, Clarion & Crippin Loams would increase the overall CSR2 value of the property. All personal items along with a small collection of rocks located at the building site will be removed prior to closing. This land is being farmed for the 2018 crop season and a rent payment of $18,840 will be paid to the Buyer on September 1, 2018. Farm is located at the intersection of 40th Avenue & 290th Street in Section 4 of Seneca Township, Kossuth County, Iowa.
