Farms Under Threat is American Farmland Trust's multi-year initiative to complete the most comprehensive assessment of the loss of U.S. farmland and ranchland ever undertaken, both past and future. AFT's goal is to document the threats and offer policy solutions to ensure the long-term protection and conservation of agricultural land in the United States to sustain an expanding population and protect biodiversity. This report examines the nation's irreversible loss of agricultural land to development between 1992 and 2012.
