Salois, Matthew and Moss, Charles (2010): An Information Approach to the Dynamics in Farm Income: Implications for Farmland Markets.
Download (135Kb) | Preview
The valuation of farmland is a perennial issue for agricultural policy, given its importance in the farm investment portfolio. Despite the significance of farmland values to farmer wealth, prediction remains a difficult task. This study develops a dynamic information measure to examine the informational content of income to farmland in explaining the distribution of farmland values over time.
