This publication reports on the first Louisiana Ag Lenders and Land Appraiser’s survey. The survey is designed to give an update on land values and cash rents for three agricultural land uses, cropland, pasture and forestry, across the state of Louisiana. The survey was also designed to provide a general outlook on expectations of farmland price and rent, interest rate movements and expectations for farm solvency across the state. Responses to the survey are from the perspective of agricultural lenders and rural appraisers across Louisiana. Respondents were divided according to one of the five (5) AgCenter regions they primarily serve: the Northwest (region 1), Northeast (region 2), Central (region 3), Southwest (region 4) and Southeast (region 5). It is our hope that the results from this survey will be useful to all concerned stakeholders in Louisiana’s agricultural industry.
