LINCOLN — The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Department of Agricultural Economics continued its live webinar series, Land Management Quarterly, on May 17 at noon.
Since 2019, the series has offered management advice and insight for Nebraska landowners, agricultural producers and others with interest in crop or grazing land along with related properties across the state.
The May 17 webinar covered 2021 cash rental rates and land values in Nebraska, critical communication issues between landlords and tenants and addressed growing drought concerns across the state. The presentation also included an “ask the experts” session, offering participants the chance to get live answers to their land or lease questions.
The webinars are led by Jim Jansen and Allan Vyhnalek, who are both in the Department of Agricultural Economics. Jansen focuses on agricultural finance and land economics, as well as the direction of the annual Nebraska Farm Real Estate Market Survey and Report. Vyhnalek is a farm succession and farmland management extension educator.
“Rising drought concerns and higher commodity prices over the last month have placed an immense amount of uncertainty on those involved with agricultural land,” Jansen said. “This webinar addresses this uncertainty when developing equitable cash rents and considerations for developing an effective lease arrangement that accounts for drought conditions.”
2021 Land Management Quarterly webinar dates are:
- May 17, noon
- Aug. 16, noon
- Nov. 15, noon
Registration is free at https://agecon.unl.edu/landmanagement. Questions may be submitted on the site ahead of time. The recording will be available the following day, along with recordings from the entire series.
