Nebraska Agricultural Land Studies Fund
Agricultural producers and landowners, real estate and finance professionals, government agencies and policy makers, non-profit organizations use this report. Virtually everyone has some tie to agricultural land and interest in it, even when they may be two or three generations removed from farming.
To continue the work started by Dr. Bruce Johnson, the Nebraska Agricultural Land Studies Fund has been established. The fund will maintain and build on the UNL land market research and information series which helps individual market participants make wise decisions as well as providing input into sound public policy decisions for the long-term sustainability of our natural resources.
