The Kansas Cropland is a highly productive farm. The seller is willing to enter into a long term-leaseback, making it perfect for an investor who desires a reasonable rate of return backed by a deed to quality farmland. Long term appreciation of farmland has a defined trend line – sloping upward to the left. A risk consideration involves irrigation water declines in certain large farming areas thereby creating un-quantified risk; dry land crop production lacks that risk, making it a safer bet. While slightly less cash return is generated, depreciation of equipment and depletion of water aquifers do not have to be quantified and accounted for thereby justifying the risk/return ratio. Modern farming practices like “no-till”, “one trip”, “chem-fallow”, etc. have been a boon to farming and particularly to the good producing areas by lowering input costs along with improved production. An opportunity to purchase a choice, contiguous property in this area is a rare opportunity.
Based on availability/ownership by current seller - Negotiable.
