John Petersen, Real Estate Agent Keller Williams Atlanta Partners

Land that has poor income potential, usually used in an agricultural sense meaning that the land is untellable, has poor access, is extremely steep, has suffered serious erosion, is extremely small or irregular, or is located at too high of an altitude to grow crops. Marginal land has a lower market valuation than high quality farm land. For example, property located in New England often is marginal land since it is extremely rocky and experiences harsh winters. Crops raised on this property are often marginally profitable.
