The main recent event in the farmland market was enforcing of farmland sales restriction law in May 2014. The law diminishes the number of potential farmland buyers and bans farmers from acquiring more than 500 hectares of farmland in total.
“Taking all these things into account, farmland demand has dropped and expansion opportunities have been restricted, however at the same time the demand for leased farmland has increased – this will influence the results in 2015.“ – Darius Sulnis, director of INVL Baltic Farmland, said.
INVL Baltic Farmland shares are not for those looking for speculative price increases, but instead for those who are willing to get higher return from rent increase compared to bank deposit and additionally earn from farmland value growth.
