Loss of farms, ranches, forests huge across Texas

TEXAS - Texas experienced a net loss of nearly 1.1 million acres of privately owned farms, ranches and forests from 1997 to 2012, continuing the trend of rural land conversion and fragmentation in Texas, according to Dr. Roel Lopez, director of the Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources. “This dramatic loss and fragmentation of privately owned farms, ranches and forests - also known as working lands - is affecting the state’s rural economies. The conservation of water and other natural resources is also being affected, as is the nation’s national and food security,” said Lopez during a recent land and water forum in Austin.
