Jones Bayou 175
Bolivar County, MS
The Jones Bayou 175 is a leveled and irrigated rice and soybean farm located in Bolivar County, Mississippi, on the outskirts of Cleveland in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. Bolivar County is a robust agricultural area with a deep tenant base of experienced farmers who produce more soybeans and rice annually than any other county in Mississippi. The area is home to many large farms owned by agricultural asset managers and investors, as well as many multigeneration family-owned farming operations.
All of the tillable acreage on the Jones Bayou 175 Farm has been leveled to grade and irrigated with water that is provided by two wells, each of which pumps from the Mississippi River Alluvial Aquifer. Precision land leveling is one of the primary drivers of land value in all of the Delta markets, as it allows growers to more evenly apply irrigation water, improves surface drainage, promotes a more uniform crop stand, and increases yields. The farm is comprised almost exclusively of Sharkey and Dowling clay soils that are typical in the area.
The Jones Bayou 175 has historically been planted to rice and soybeans and will be rented to a neighboring farmer who will implement a similar crop rotation going forward. In 2020, the farm produced 198 bushels per acre of rice, which is approximately 34 bushels per acre greater than the 5 year county average (per USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service).
