Re: County platbook from 1938

K-289, I would say up until a year ago what was $75-$125/acre went up 100 times so 2017 it would be $7500 to $12,500.  It`s came down 10-15% so that $7500 land is realistically $6500.   But 80yrs ago yields were 50 bpa, a good man and team could pick 150 bushel a day.  So yields went up 4, 5 times in 80 years......and if you figure all my fixin` I do, I still am lucky to harvest 150 bushel a day   Smiley Happy
