Abstract
  • The loss of wetlands in the United States has been widely publicized. Wetland conversions to agricultural production have been responsible for a large percentage of wetland losses. Partially in recognition of the agricultural cause for this wetland loss, Congress promulgated the "swampbuster" provisions of the Food Security Act of 1985. The potential effects of these provisions were analyzed in the Tualatin River Valley, Oregon. The resulting data indicate that approximately 11% of the non-linear wetlands, and approximately 8.9% of wetland acres may be potentially protected by the provisions from agricultural conversion to commodity crop production. This relatively small number of potentially protected wetlands, however, may affect the operations of 47% of the farms operating in the area.
