Farmland Protection 

This report from 1998 lays out the tools used to create the state of Maryland’s seminal innovative and successful farmland protection strategy: a series of maps identifying the state’s strategic farmland, a model farmland protection program offering a mix of incentive-based and regulatory techniques, and a cooperative assessment examining existing farmland protection efforts and offering recommendations to motivate communities to expand and enhance their programs.
