These price scenarios include 1) 2013 price estimates, 2) long-run price estimates, and 3) low price estimates. The 2013 price projections yield returns that can sustain high cash rents. Lower prices likely will lead to downward pressure on cash rents.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://farmindustrynews.com/business/cash-rents-given-differing-price-levels" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://farmindustrynews.com/business/cash-rents-given-differing-price-levels#comments Business Finance Tue, 16 Oct 2012 16:38:00 +0000 60041 at http://farmindustrynews.com
