Top 20 States Losing Farmland To Development

Farming on the Edge presents the top 20 states losing prime farmland to development, as well as posters and images.

"Each year you have to drive a little farther out to find it. Slowed by traffic, through tangled intersections, past rows of houses that seem to have sprouted from the field, finally, you can see the bountiful farmland. It wasn't always like this. But for the past two decades we've paved over our farmland for roads, houses and malls. Wasteful land use puts America's farmland at risk, especially our most fertile and productive--our most valuable--farmland."
