Journal of the ASFMRA

The Journal of the ASFMRA provides both academic researchers and rural property professionals a forum in which to share their expertise with a broad audience. The Journal seeks to publish manuscripts that discuss cutting-edge farm management, appraisal, and/or agricultural consulting practices, as well as recent research projects whose findings are relevant to professional farm managers, rural appraisers, and agricultural consultants. The Journal provides academic authors an opportunity to publish their practical research, industry professionals an outlet to share their “from the field” experience, and seeks to be the first resource that academic and industry practitioners turn to for state-of-the-art information on the rural property professions. 

Select authors are invited to present their papers at the ASFMRA Annual Conference each November, and the authors of the paper deemed as the most exceptional submission each year are chosen to receive the “Golden Quill Award.”
