Lost: Up to one million acres of Colorado farm land

".. 500,000 to one million acres of Colorado farm land was converted to other uses between 1982 and 2002."
- Dr. Curtis E. Swift, retired horticulture agent with the Colorado State University Extension

Dr. Swift also notes that development does not necessarily enrich local government coffers:

Cost of services in new developements reveals "$1.24 in community services for every $1 of tax revenue generated, while agriculture demanded only $0.38 in services per $1 of tax revenue contributed.”
- report by Roger Coupal and Andy Seidl of Colorado State University

Learn how Dr. Swift believes you can keep "wild lands wild and agricultural lands agricultural".
