Whether you’re a land renter or owner, determining a fair rent price is a challenging process. For farmers, land rental is important for farm profitability. For landowners, renting land maximizes assets. Unless landowners and renters can agree on a price, the system can’t function.

Land rental rates vary depending on a variety of factors such as location, soil, and lease terms. UW-Madison Division of Extension is often a resource for landowners and renters looking to find average rental rates.

Extension is conducting a survey in Kewaunee and Door counties to determine local average rental rates. Land renters and owners in both counties are being asked to take a five-minute survey to help establish local rent averages and lease agreement terms. The survey is anonymous and the results will be grouped by town/county.

You can find the survey here: http://bit.ly/KewDoorLandSurvey

The survey deadline is Feb. 15, 2020. A results summary will be available after the survey closes.
