agricultural economics, farm real estate, farm rental
By virtually every standard. U.S. production agriculture appears in the midst of an accelerated structural change. Financial stress on the heels of the expansionary 1970s political uncertainty over the government's future role in agriculture technological upheaval in the form of increasing productivity in competitive nations and in the emergence of biotechnology are all currently affecting farming and shaping its future. These changes have potentially serious implications for the use. value. and ownership of agricultural land. Consequently debate is keen as to the aggregate impacts of these structural developments on land use (or non-use) and as to their associated effects on land values. Less attention has been focused on the implications of the current state of agriculture. economically and structurally for the farmland rental market and its institutions.
