Estimates for the current rental value of pasture land, irrigated land, hay ground, 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 Farmland Value Survey. The values from the June 2017 survey are reported here. Because the number of responses for some items is small, the number of responses is reported.

Averages for pasture rent, irrigated land, hay ground, and the rental of on-farm grain storage are presented in Tables 1, 2, 3, and 4, respectively. The rental rate for grain bins includes the situation where there is just a bin and the situation where there is a bin and utilities.
