Underlying motivational factors of farmers when acquiring arable land

The present study was designed to determine the underlying motivational factors of farmers when acquiring arable land. The study contributes to the field by deriving from existing literature, such as the Net Present Value (NPV), hedonic pricing and behavioural aspects, and criticizing its inadequacy. By doing so, the present study aims to create a holistic picture of the matter.
