Abstract: We verify a very recent conjecture of Farmer and Rhoades on the asymptotic rate of growth of the derivatives of the Riemann xi function at $ s=1/2$. We give two separate proofs of this result, with the more general method not restricted to $ s=1/2$. We briefly describe other approaches to our results, give a heuristic argument, and mention supporting numerical evidence.
