Voluntary Incentives for Farmland Preservation in Central Ohio: What Do Farmers Think?

Most farmland preservation tools in this country are voluntary. This means that the success of farmland preservation programs is in part dependent on the receptivity of farmers to the methods for protecting their land. Given the diversity of farmers throughout the country, these attitudes are likely to vary from place to place. In order to design successful programs and fine−tune their implementation, it is important to understand farmers' perceptions of preservation tools. This study examines the opinions of farmers in one township in central Ohio on recently proposed measures to protect farmland in the state.
