Each year the United States Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statics Service releases cash rent amounts by land use for various states and regions across the country. Geographically, they compare and group Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.
In Idaho cash rents for all land types, irrigated cropland, non-irrigated cropland, and pasture, posted declines from 2016 to 2017. In Oregon and Washington, cropland rents increased year-over-year, but 2017 pasture rents decreased from the previous year.
Nationally, cash rents for irrigated cropland increased from 2016 to 2017 by 2.9%. Non-irrigated cropland cash rents declined 1.6% from the previous year. Across the country, pasture cash rents decreased 3.8%, less than the larger declines observed in Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
The graphs below show changes in cash rent payments by land use from 2013 to 2017 by state.
