UNL CropWatch Sept. 14, 2010: USDA Offers Cash Rent Reports by County and District

Sept. 14, 2010

USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) collects county-level data on cash rental rates for agricultural land. The information is available online and includes average rental rates for non-irrigated cropland, irrigated cropland, and pastureland for the 2010 calendar year.

“These data will provide an important decision-making tool for farmers, ranchers and other landowners,” said Dean Groskurth, director of the NASS Nebraska Field Office. “In addition, USDA agencies will have these data available to help develop and administer important farm programs used by farmers and ranchers.”

The 2010 county-level cash rental rates data are available online at www.nass.usda.gov through Quick Stats, NASS’s agricultural statistics database.
