The purpose of this study is to estimate the land values as affected by factors such as availability of groundwater in terms of saturated thickness, pumping lift, soil type and quality. This hedonic pricing model will then be incorporated into a regression analysis in association with the actual sales prices of parcels sold in the last five years as reported by regional groundwater development offices in order to determine the effect each component in the pricing model has on the dollar value per acre of agricultural land in the Texas High Plains.
