Isn't soil expensive

I have been looking at land prices here and thought I would make some comparisons with the UK.

Admittedly it’s been a while since I had anything to do with land purchases in the UK but blimey, I didn’t realise it had gone up by that much! According to DEFRA one hectare of prime English farm land will set you back 14 grand and that was 2008 prices! Makes $650 per hectare here look a tad more palatable.
