From USDA Land Values 2015 Summary, (click here) published August 2015
The United States farm real estate value, a measurement of the value of
all land and buildings on farms, averaged $3,020 per acre for 2015, up
2.4 percent from 2014 values. Regional changes in the average value of
farm real estate ranged from a 6.1 percent increase in the Southern
Plains region to 0.3 percent decrease in the Corn Belt region. The
highest farm real estate values were in the Corn Belt region at $6,350
per acre. The Mountain region had the lowest farm real estate value at
$1,100 per acre.
One Acre = 43,560 square feet
There are 4840 square yards in an acre and 9 square feet in a square yard (4840 x 9 = 43,560).
An acre is an ancient measurement used in agriculture - it was 4 poles
wide and 40 poles long. A pole is equivalent to sixteen and a half
feet. So historically an acre was a strip of land 660 feet long (220
yards or one eighth of a mile) and 66 feet wide (22 yards or one
eightieth of a mile).
