DENVER, Sept. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Farmland Partners Inc. (NYSE: FPI) (the "Company") has received numerous inquiries regarding impacts from recent hurricanes and the lease renewal cycle and would like the share the following information.

Hurricanes Ida and Nicholas

In the past few weeks, the Delta region, and Louisiana in particular, has been hit by Hurricanes Ida and Nicholas.  While there was substantial rain on the Company's farms in the region, none of the Company's farms suffered significant damage from the storms.  Many farmers, other business owners, and residents were not so fortunate, and we wish them a speedy recovery.

Lease Renewals

  • Total portfolio: Approximately 158,000 acres owned and approximately 8,300 acres managed.
  • 2021 Renewals: Approximately 40,100 acres, or approximately 27% of total owned portfolio1
  • 2021 Renewals Completed: Approximately 23,250 acres, or 59% of renewals1
  • Renewal Trends: Weighted average increase of approximately 10% to 11%
