This article discusses asset bubbles, the Kansas and Illinois land markets, estimates land values, and develops a land price/earnings ratio. Current land sales data are also examined. Finally, we examine relationships between land values and interest rates, inflation rates, and cash rents....
Appraisers use puritan sales to estimate the ratio of prices for different types of land. However, puritan sales may be hard to find in areas where parcels contain upland, bottomland, meadow, pasture, irrigation, recreational land, and CRP. This paper uses regression to identify the value of...
With farm income at record, or near record levels, the overall agricultural production sector has fared well. However, in the current economic climate, instability and volatility in certain agricultural input markets caused by the U.S. macro-economy has put increased pressure on some sub-sectors...
The dynamics in stock returns and the market return for 21 food and agribusiness firms are estimated in a threshold switching-regression framework. Threshold adjustment levels and capital asset pricing model risk parameters are estimated and tested. Results indicate risk parameters differ for...
A ten-year linear programming model of a representative dryland crop farm in North Central Kansas is used to develop and illustrate procedures for analyzing economic impacts of the elimination of one or more pesticides on an individual farm. Atrazine is used as an example pesticide because of...
Land prices in Western Kansas are analyzed using regression to estimate the influence of rainfall, sales method, and time of sale. The estimates from regression indicate that land prices decreased about $27 for each range that was farther west which can be converted to about $75 per inch of...
The risk and return on capital markets is well documented in the academic literature. A well known model to examine the risk and return of capital markets is the capital asset pricing model. This model investigates risk as diversifiable risk and non-diversifiable risk. To apply this model to the...
