Corn and Soybean prices have been low during the last 3 marketing years compared to 2011-2013. The past 3 marketing years have had corn average $3.70, $3.61, $3.36 respectively. Gary Schnitkey and Todd Hubbs, U of Illinois Ag Economists reviewed the 5-year price projections for corn and soybeans as well as the past 5 years corn and soybeans price history in an article recently, link below. The corn price projections range from a low of $3.20 to a high of $3.96 over the next 5 years. Soybean prices are projected to range from a low of $9.07 to a high of $9.87. If these price ranges are accurate, cash rental rates are likely to decline somewhat. Budgeting, crop marketing plans and good tenant-land owner communications are imperative for the next few years.
