SURVEY FINDS FARMLAND PARTNERS' TENANTS EMBRACE SUSTAINABLE FARMING PRACTICES
Farmland Partners reports:

Denver - Farmland Partners Inc. (NYSE: FPI) (the "Company" or "FPI") today released the results of an internal survey conducted to help quantify the responsible farming practices being used within the Company's portfolio.

"FPI's tenants include farm families that are leading the way in sustainability by embracing the latest agronomic techniques, technologies, and conservation practices to drive efficiency and preserve the land they farm," concluded the report.

For example, 97% of survey respondents said that they invest in soil health; 94% practice conservation tillage; 87% use variable rate application technology to apply crop inputs; and 51% participate in federal conservation programs.

The survey also found high adoption rates for other environmental strategies, such as grassed waterways or buffer strips to slow runoff and trap soil sediment, planting cover crops, and the use of diesel exhaust fluid to reduce emissions from farm equipment.

"It's important to recognize the role farmland and farmers play in affordably feeding the world's growing population in an environmentally responsible way," said FPI Chairman and CEO Paul Pittman. "We're proud to say that our tenants are leaders in this movement."

Pittman said that this survey was used to help in identifying the agronomic tools and techniques commonly used on farmland owned and managed by the Company, and that it will continue this type of communication to better understand tenants' operations and promote sustainability.

The survey was sent to 137 FPI tenants across the country - 63% of whom submitted responses from February 23 to March 31, 2022. The survey's results are available at http://ir.farmlandpartners.com/Tenant-Survey/default.aspx.
