With Dr. Eric Thompson, Bureau of Business Research, UNL, and Dr. Brad Lubben and Dr. Jeffrey Stokes, both of the Department of Agricultural Economics. Nebraska’s total net farm income is a little over 5% of the state’s total personal income on average. Those percentages rank Nebraska third highest of the 50 states and the highest percentage for any state with a population over 1 million. This study is a joint collaborative effort of the Department of Agricultural Economics and the Bureau of Business Research within the Department of Economics and funded internally by the Institute of Agricultural and Natural Resources (IANR) of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. It draws on substantial expertise in key issues affecting agriculture such as irrigation, natural resources, the agricultural equipment industry, and community economic development.
