Land seems to have found a floor and has bounced on it. Prices have not gone up, but they seem to have stabilized. Farmer optimism is better than it has been. However, unless farmers are encouraged to buy because of a landlord wanting to sell, or because of a land auction, they are in no hurry to take on more debt.
