Rural land appraisal is based on (i) the productive capacity of the land, (ii) the potential appreciation of a land investment, and (iii) the market value of land (Appraisal Institute 2000). According to one appraiser: “Land holds a unique and pivotal position in social, political, environmental and economic theory. Land supports all life and stands at the center of human culture and institutions … It is nature’s gift to mankind, which enables life to continue and prosper”.
