Farmland Conversion: Perceptions and Realities

Farmland Conversion: Perceptions and Realities (no. 16, 2001, pdf)

Nicolai V. Kuminoff, Alvin D. Sokolow and Daniel A. Sumner examine both the numbers that measure farmland conversions and the related public perceptions about the causes and consequences of conversion–the basis of arguments about the seriousness of the problem and its policy solutions. Also available (online only) are two appendices to the Issues Brief describing the authors’ calculations for total agricultural land and farmland conversion.
