Platte County Extension educator Allan Vyhnalek told a Cornhusker Economics Outlook meeting crowd in West Point a few weeks ago that the average statewide farmland value this past year topped the $3,000 per acre mark for the first time.
A report released this week by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln proved him to be correct.
The report said the statewide average the past year came to $3,195 per acre, which is about 5 percent higher than a year ago.
Agricultural land markets in Nebraska remained relatively steady in the last year, according to preliminary findings from UNL’s Farm Real Estate Market Developments survey.
