Latest on the land market

Jeff Caldwell 02/06/2012 @ 12:57pm Multimedia Editor for Agriculture.com and Successful Farming magazine.

Farm land and its rising value continues to be one of the biggest stories in the business of farming in the U.S. this winter. Now, there's recent speculation that it's not just the value to the owner and renter, but the federal government that's now getting attention with a recent report showing property taxes for land will likely continue to move higher until at least 2015.

It's just the latest sign of the strength of the land market, at least right now. Will it continue? Here's some of the latest discussion from Agriculture.com members and reporting from its editors on the red-hot land market.
