Abstract
  • Seven one-square-mile areas were selected to test the notion that there is a general intensification of agriculture as farm land becomes more valuable. The Tualatin Valley adjacent to a large expanding population center was selected because the land values in this valley are increasing faster than are those of average farmland. The possible correlation between historical agricultural land-use data and historical land-value changes was examined. Data was compiled mainly through field research, county assessor records, and interviews with landowners and public agencies. Each area studied, from the most suburbanized to the most rural, shows a wide range of land values/acre. There is an uneven growth rate of land values and tax rates between different parts of the Tualatin, not necessarily explained by proximity to the most rapidly urbanizing areas. Farmers testify that the increase in suburbanization has forced very few of them to intensify agricultural practices. Historically there is no record or evidence to indicate that intensification of agricultural land-uses preceeded urbanization. As land values increase due to mounting pressures of suburbanization from the metropolitan center, farming practices tend to change very little. Analysis of each of the seven case studies reveals that no general agricultural intensification has occurred.
