Abstract
  • Farm Use Assessment used as a planning tool to preserve farmland in Oregon has achieved mixed success. While some land enrolled in the program (especially near urban areas) has been converted to nonfarm use, the majority of land has not. However, this may be due to lack of '1opportunity profits" for landowners rather than to incentives designed into the program to prevent conversion. This paper examines the Farm Use Assessment. program in certain areas of Washington County, Oregon. Tax lot data for the time period since the program was enacted was analyzed for those changes in land use which occurred on land enrolled in the program. This research shows that although farmland owners found the tax benefits of the program advantageous in holding down farming cost, these same benefits were not great enough to affect the profits to be gained from conversion of land to non-farm uses.
