Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that a class action lawsuit has
been filed on behalf of investors that purchased or otherwise acquired
the securities of Farmland Partners Inc. ("Farmland" or the "Company")
between May 9, 2017 and July 10, 2018, inclusive (the "Class
Period"). Farmland investors have until September 10, 2018 to
file a lead plaintiff motion.

On July 11, 2018, Rota Fortunae published a report alleging that
Farmland artificially increased revenues by making loans to
related-party tenants who round-tripped the cash back to Farmland as
rent. The report also claimed that Farmland neglected to disclose that
the majority of its loans were made to two members of its management
team. On this news, Farmland's share price fell nearly 40% on July 11,
2018, thereby injuring investors.

The complaint filed in this class action alleges that the Company made
false and misleading statements to the market throughout the class
period. Farmland inflated its revenue artificially by making loans to
related parties. Based on this fact, the Company's revenues were
overstated throughout the class period. Farmland's public statements
were false and materially misleading.

If you purchased shares of Farmland, have information or would like to
learn more about these claims, or have any questions concerning this
announcement or your rights or interests with respect to these matters,
please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G.
