This one-day seminar will review the traditional valuation methods in the appraisal of permanent plantings, in the context of changing markets. An in-depth discussion of the concept of the “ideal improvement” will be held and students will gain tools to help them identify an ideal permanent planting improvement and use the concept to guide them through the highest and best use analysis and set the stage for the twists and turns of a complex valuation. A case study will be presented, with the dynamics of supply and demand explored and the influence that an oversupply or shortage of a specific commodity or variety can have on farm real estate markets. Finally, the impact on permanent crops of dwindling water supplies and rising costs will be covered. Students should be conversant in owner-operator income statements for common West Coast permanent crops, direct capitalization techniques, and the concepts of functional and external obsolescence.
