Abstract:
Concern for disappearing prime agricultural land to development was a major concern for legislators after a national report called the National Agricultural Lands Study released in 1981.

The article reviews the rate at which the state was losing agricultural lands to development and ways to conserve the state's natural and agricultural assets.
