Do agricultural districts consist entirely of farmland?
Districts must consist predominantly of viable agricultural land. This predominance test is interpreted as more than 50% land in farms. On average, districts state-wide contain approximately 70% farmland. The benefits and protections available under the law, however, apply only to land used in agricultural production.
