Farmland investors talk of possible Iowa bubble - Agriculture.com Community

Farmland investors talk of possible Iowa bubble - Agriculture.com Community | agriculture investments | Scoop.it
Article below on farmland values. Anyone have any thoughts/opinions if the market has a bubble?
----------------------------------------------------
GreenWorld Forestry and Farmland Investments's insight:

Article on Jim Rogers' and farmland.  Jim believes that farmland in the US state of Iowa is over valued.  We agree with him, and its' even worse in the UK and some western European countries.  This means that capital gains will be limited, and yearly dividends will be small. GreenWorld believes the best values for farmland right now are in certain emerging markets.  For example, our farmland investments in Lithuania and Africa pay approximately 10% and 15% dividends respectively. Even Jim Rogers' still strongly believes the agriculture story has a LONG way to run, but like any investment, besides just choosing a general asset class, where and how you invest in that asset class is critical.   Feel free to peruse information on Lithuanian and African farmland:

As the world's population grows, hunger persists on a massive scale - that's why additional investments in agriculture are so critical | agriculture investments | Scoop.it
Nearly 1 billion people are malnourished, and a child dies of hunger every 11 seconds. By 2050, farmers would have to double crop production to meet the demand.
GreenWorld Forestry and Farmland Investments's insight:

There are numerous articles we have come across on this theme of hunger and food security.  An ethical issue of course.  However, its also points out the need for continued investments in agriculture and farmland.  This is indeed a case where profits and a social good are nicely aligned.  Invest in farmland! http://www.greenworldbvi.com/
