The value of farmland in the Plains states climbed 3.4% in Q1 from Q4, the Kansas City Fed said, representing a slowdown from the 7.7% sequential growth seen in Q1 '12. Falling commodity prices cooled soaring land prices, which have spurred fears of a bubble. The St. Louis Fed said farmland prices in its district fell 2.3% in Q1.
