Farmer Mac Refresh Webinar – Midwest Farmland Values and U.S.-China Agricultural Trade with Dr. Wendong Zhang

Our next webinar will cover two topics of considerable interest lately, Midwest farmland values and America’s agricultural trade relations with China. This session will feature a guest speaker and an expert in both topics, Chinese native and Iowa State University’s Dr. Zhang, the lead researcher of the Iowa Land Value Survey. You won’t want to miss Dr. Zhang’s analysis of factors driving the recent hikes in farmland values across the Corn Belt and the current state of U.S.-China agricultural trade.
