A comparison of farmland returns in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and United States
Eves, Chris & Painter, Marvin (2008) A comparison of farmland returns in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and United States. Australian & New Zealand Property Journal, 1(7), pp. 588-598.
Rural land is still a major property asset class and rural commodity production is an important domestic and export market in all economies. This paper carries out a comprehensive analysis of both rural production and land prices in four major rural production countries. The study compares rural property values in Unites States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand over a period 1990 to 2005 and analyzes and compares the capital return and total return performance for rural land in these four countries. The analysis allows a comparison of farm land returns for both a subsidised and non-subsidised farming policy to determine if levels of farm support result in variations in farm profitability and therefore farm land values.
