Abstract or Summary
  • The land tenure system in the United States contains a variety of tenure types. A major characteristic of this tenure system is the continual change of tenure types within a given region. As these tenure types change, problems of a cultural, economic, and legal nature are created and interact with the tenure system. The purpose of this study is two fold: First, the examination and analysis of the land tenure system in the Calapooia Drainage Basin to determine tenure types, past and present trends of land tenure, and possible future tenure type composition within this region, and second, analysis of selected problems associated with the change in tenure types and the resulting overall effect on the region. The analysis revealed several trends: the decrease in the number of farms, with an increase in the size of the farms; increased urban migration to rural areas; and increasing single female (widow) ownership. In view of these trends and related problems, it is concluded that the present grass seed industry would continue its present decline over the next two decades, and that the agricultural land base would be converted to residential home sites and associated urban functions. It is also concluded that if the grass seed industry were to continue in its present form, a number of changes must be instigated. These changes include: (1) effective and enforced county zoning, (2) a more viable rent contract for agricultural land, (3) the revision of the present tax structure to facilitate a proportional distribution of taxes in rural areas.
