    El valor de la tierra agraria está determinado por las características agronómicas de este input. Pero el precio de la tierra agraria con frecuencia supera al alza o a la baja su valor, debido a la existencia de una serie de factores no agronómicos (endógenos y exógenos al sector) que ejercen presiones en la determinación y evolución del precio. Desde esta perspectiva, el objetivo que se persigue es analizar los principales factores no agronómicos determinantes del precio del suelo rústico a partir de los años ochenta. El ámbito de estudio se centra en la provincia de Lleida y se distingue entre tierras de secano y de regadío. Las estimaciones realizadas muestran que los principales factores que explican el comportamiento de los precios de la tierra agraria son: el considerar la tierra como un refugio del capital, las subvenciones recibidas de la PAC y las expectativas de plusvalía. The value of the agricultural land is determined by the characteristics of the land itself. However, the price of the land very often is higher or lower than is value. This is caused by the existence of several non-agronomic factors (endogenous and exogenous) that infl uence the determination and the evolution of the price. From this prospective, the aim of this work is to determine the major non-agronomic factors that are infl uencing the market price of the rustic land, from the year 1980 onwards. As estimations reveals the main factors that explain price performance for agricultural land are the opportunity cost of capital, the subsidies received from the PAC and the expectations of land appreciation.
