Abstract or Summary
  • Marginal agricultural and forest lands are currently a focus of concern for public land use agencies in Oregon. Two alternatives 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 management tools have had limited application in Oregon, but have not been compared to each other to determine their relative effects. This study proposes to compare LESA and SB 237 by applying their criteria to the 23 case study tracts of the 1983-84 Linn County LESA study, and to a larger contiguous tract of agricultural land near Scio in northern Linn County. The study's determination of the comparative strengths and weaknesses of the two methods can be used by the Linn County Planning Department, by the Land Resource Management Program of the OSU Extension Service and by state agencies and legislators to help evaluate the 2-year performance of SB 237, and the feasibility of using LESA as an alternative to SB 237.
