A Relative Efficiency Analysis Of Farmland Preservation Programs

  • Lynch, Lori
  • Musser, Wesley N.

Using an inverted Farrell methodology, we analyze the relative efficiency of five agricultural land preservation programs in three counties of Maryland in achieving the stated goals of maximum acreage, threatened parcels, and productive farms. Regression analysis is then used to compare the programs both within and between counties.
