I am of the opinion, possibly wrong, that all the known factors are already priced into land prices. Which is to say, that there really are no bargains in one area vs. another. There is always a reason why one area is higher or lower than another. Even if that reason has nothing to do with farming, such as development potential( which might be wildly profitable in the long haul, but won't make any payments in the interim), or recreational potential/view/resources etc.
Climate/Weather/hail, yields, proximity to markets and services, accessibility, topography, soils, rocks, water table, manure access etc. are already priced in, and cheaper is cheaper for a reason. Which doesn't help at all if nothing is for sale in your immediate area of course.
