Abstract: As urbanization extends into the agricultural community, valuable lands for the production of food and fiber are being taken for nonagricultural uses. The need to protect these agricultural lands and maintain a farmland base are discussed, as well as the the major forms of agricultural land protection, including several excerpts from the National Agricultural Lands Study and some positive protection-type ordinances that have resulted from the efforts of citizens.
