Estimates for the current rental value of pastureland, hay ground, irrigated land, and on-farm grain storage in Indiana are often difficult to locate. For the past several years, questions about these items have been included in the Purdue Land Values and Cash Rent Survey. These tables report the values from the June 2021 survey.

 

Table 1 reports averages and the number of responses for pasture rent. The number of acres required to support a cow, animal unit, is also presented.

Table 2 reports the average per acre rental rates and the number of responses for established alfalfa/grass hay and grass hay.

Table 3 provides information about the value and rental rate for irrigated farmland. These rates are associated with the production of corn and soybeans. When producing speciality crops, such as see corn or tomatoes, rent is frequently higher.

Table 4 provides information about on-farm grain storage rental rates. The rental rate for grain bins includes the situation where the bin is rented and the person renting the bin pays utility expenses, where the bin is rented and the bin owner pays the utility bills, and where the producer rents a system that includes dryer, legs, and bins. These rates are annual rates.

The first year for reporting this information was 2006. Past reports are in the Purdue Agricultural Economics Report archive: https://purdue.ag/paer_archive.
