University of Missouri Extension researchers invite Missouri landowners, farmers, ranchers and hunters to participate in the 2024 Missouri Cash Rental Rate Survey to inform land value trends and aid decision-making.

Roughly 35% of Missouri crop, pasture and woodland acreage is leased to renters every year. Rented acreage has increased recently, as more land has transitioned to the next generation, interest rates have incentivized land investments and interest in carbon markets, and working land conservation has surged, said MU Extension agricultural economist Ben Brown.

Participants can complete the anonymous survey in about 10 minutes at https://bit.ly/MORental-Rates. Paper surveys are also available at county Extension centers. Brown encourages Missourians to submit responses before the July 15 deadline.
