Widespread farm mortgage foreclosure and assignment in recent years have resulted in the creditors acquisition of large acreages of farm land. In many instances the creditors are incorporated financial institutions such as banks and insurance companies. This study is intended to determine the extent, some effects, and some related causal factors in this comparatively recent phenomenon of widespread farm real estate acquisition by financial institutions.
