Talk of a farmland bubble continues to grow with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) holding a special symposium on the issue Thursday morning, March 10. The FDIC titled the conference: "Don't Bet The Farm: Assessing the Boom in U.S. Farmland Prices." Interest in the symposium is so strong the FDIC stopped accepting registrations. Read the press release here. You can watch it on web cast if interested.
The New York Times has raised the question with this recent piece.
The Financial Times has ventured into the subject with this recent story.
We've seen plenty of other stories on the subject, as well, ranging from The Wall Street Journal to the Omaha World-Herald.
We also find this presentation by Kansas State's Bryan Schurle to be very useful.
