AIC Issues Brief Farmland Conversion: Perceptions and Realities

Abstract

How extensive is farmland conversion in California and what are the consequences? Is farmland all-too rapidly disappearing as new homes, shopping centers, and office buildings move out into the countryside, threatening the continued viability of the state’s agriculture? Or are there so many acres devoted to agriculture–especially in the vast Central Valley–that the present pace of urban development can continue for decades without seriously affecting farm production?
