The Changing Landscape of New York Agriculture in the Twentieth Century
This report seeks to highlight the changes that have occurred in New York State's agriculture during the twentieth century. It is a look backward to observe the processes of change that have occurred and to provide perspective on the changes yet to come. It is hard to believe that the next century can provide the same kind of dramatic changes we have experienced in the past fifty years, but we should not be surprised at the unexpected, even to a return of some forest land to farming!
