Farmland Protection

This report offers a detailed view of the nation's agricultural landscape and the challenges that threaten farms and rances at the state level. The findings in this report show how much high-quality farmland each state converted to non-farm uses. It also scores the extent to which these states responded to agricultural land conversion through conservation programs and offers recommendations that state policy and decision-makers can use to help preserve agricultural land. Within the same research, it provides an interactive map that displays the main findings.
