The average value of Canadian farmland rose 22.1% in
2013, with the majority of the increase occurring in the
first half of the year, according to an appraisal update of
245 benchmark farms across Canada conducted by Farm
Credit Canada (FCC), the nation's leading ag lender.

The surge is the highest since FCC began reporting on farmland values in 1985. The second highest was 19.5% in 2012.

All provinces reported gains or remained stable in 2013, reports FCC.

Saskatchewan experienced the highest average increase at 28.5%. It was followed by Manitoba at 25.6% and then by Quebec at 24.7%.

Ontario and Alberta experienced average increases of 15.9% and 12.9%, respectively.

They were followed by New Brunswick at 7.2%, Prince Edward Island at 4.4%, British Columbia at 3.0% and Nova Scotia at 1.9%.

Average farmland values were unchanged in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The average value of Canadian farmland last decreased in 1992 when it dropped by 2.1%.
