Rent will vary based on expected crop return. The higher the expected return the higher the rent will tend to be.
Land that exhibits highly variable returns may have rents discounted for this quality. For example, land that is poorly drained may exhibit variability of returns due to late plantings from wet springs.
Higher quality soils translate into higher rents.
Higher fertility levels often result in higher cash rents.
Better surface and sub-surface drainage of a farm often results in better yields and higher potential cash rent.
Larger parcels typically command higher average cash rent per acre due to the efficiencies gained by operators.
Additional factors that may influence rental rates include, tillage or crop rotation, FSA Base acres, services provided by tenant, and reputation of landowner or operator.
