In June, the Farm Journal Pulse asked farmers: Where do you think farmland values in your county are headed in the next three years? Of the 1,083 respondents, 46% said either down slightly or significantly.

In 2013, a poll asked farmers for their expectations on farmland values in the year ahead, and only 18% of the 1,582 respondents said decrease. At that time, 34% said increase, and 48% said stay the same.
