AGRIBUSINESS: Fewer Iowa Farms
The number of farms in Iowa continues to dwindle, even as the amount of land in farms has remained constant since 2010. A new report from the Iowa Field Office of USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) shows 2,900 Iowa farms disappeared from 2008 to 2013. The total number of farms in Iowa in 2013 was 88,500.
