HOW MANY IOWA COMMERCIAL FARM BUSINESSES WILL SURVIVE UNTIL 2000?

This study of farm financial conditions in Iowa indicates the potential for significant and widespread financial stress exists should commodity prices remain 15 to 30 percent below 1997 average levels. This isn't a repeat of the 1980s when farmers struggled with excessive debt, high interest rates and crashing asset values -- but the potential for increased financial stress is very real. This study is based on financial information obtained from members of the Iowa Farm Business Association.
