  • Value of Agriculture production is increasing while acreage is declining.

  • High value per acre crops are better able to compete with alternative land uses.

  • Lower value per acre crops are the most susceptible to conversion to non-agricultural uses.

  • Incentives for agricultural land uses that capitalize on the environmental benefits that agricultural land provides may assist in maintaining the economic viability of agriculture
