The average value of farmland increased significantly across the state between 1990 and 2002. However, the rate of growth of farmland values, and the values themselves, varied greatly by county and district. Areas with urban pressures, especially in the Southeast District, have seen the value of farmland skyrocket since 1990. The conversion of farmland to non-agricultural uses was also quite varied across the state, with the West Central and Southwest districts losing the most farmland acreage to other uses. On average, the rate of farmland conversion to non-agricultural uses has decreased steadily since the beginning of the 1990s.
