WHAT DRIVES FARMLAND CONVERSION: FARM RETURNS VERSUS URBAN FACTORS?

This paper uses an analytical and econometric approach to analyze the farmland conversion process, including the effects of population growth, real estate markets, the agricultural-urban edge, and farm returns. We use a unique county-level dataset on farmland conversion for California that tracks conversions between agricultural, urban and other land uses.
