Abstract

This address contends that agriculture, as a land intensive business, is critical to the Illinois economy and farmland protection belongs on the state's agenda as a policy objective as well as a significant goal of growth management. The author reasons that the adequacy of food supply and the necessity of farmland, as well as the non-owner services of farmland, require the inclusion of farmland protection on the state's planning agenda. Looking toward the future of farmland use and conversion, the author reviews the important planning and legal issues relative to farmland protection as a policy issue and suggests several strategies for consideration in Illinois in evaluating, planning and preserving its farmland resources.
