The Role of Policy for Agricultural Preservation
The role of policies for farmland protection is critical. Statutes that regulate the conversion of agricultural land to non-agricultural land exist on the federal, state, and local levels; they all use a variety of methods to reach the same goal of preserving prime farmland. It is important that there is secured funding and a sound framework that allows all levels of governments to pursue agricultural preservation programming.
