Determining Dollar Value

In order to determine dollar amounts of land, I have used a formula from the USDA which roughly gives a value to cultivated land.  This formula converts garden area, length of growing season, quality of produce and distance between rows into the dollar value of production.  You may want ot look around for other models as well which take other specific variables into account.
Dollar value of Production=Area (sq. ft.) x crop intensity (distance between rows)* x crop quality** x length of season***
*Less than 1 ft.=1.2; 1 ft to less than 2 ft.=1.0
**Good=.7; fair=.4
***200 or more days=1.2; less than 200=1
