2024 Illinois Land Values Conference

When:  Mar 21, 2024 from 09:00 AM to 11:45 AM (CT)

$4 Corn Means Different Decisions
We have seen the big two of corn/soybean costs (land and equipment) get set up for $6+ corn, and now we are seeing $4+ corn. Cash rents went up and they seldom come down very far. I know that some operators have ground that doesn’t pencil at these prices, but they feel trapped by equipment and the idea that corn prices might bounce back sooner rather than later. The best operators make some difficult decisions sooner rather than later. I’ll be advocating that they look for 10% of their cash rent acreage that is furthest out of line to exit in 2025.
