Abstract
  • Marginal agricultural land is currently a focus of concern for public land use agencies in Oregon. Two approaches for evaluating marginal agricultural lands are the Land Evaluation and Site Assessment (LESA) model of the U.S. Soil Conservation Service, and the marginal lands criteria of the 1983 Oregon Legislature's Senate Bill 237. Each of these land management tools have had limited application in Oregon, but have not undergone extensive field evaluation to determine their relative effects and requirements. This research paper examines the application of SB 237 criteria to 23 case study tax lots included in the 1983-84 Linn County LESA study. In addition, the SB 237 criteria are applied to a larger tract of agricultural land near Scio in northern Linn County. An analysis of the procedures and findings is presented. Other findings point out those spatial land characteristics which are associated with marginal land as defined by SB 237. The findings of this paper's SB 237 field evaluations are framed in the context of Oregon's land use planning program. Key Words: marginal agricultural land, parcelization.
