Abstract

Total population in Sacramento County increased 81 % between 1950 and 1960; but farm population decreased 51 %. Projections for Sacramento County indicate a population of 1 million before 1980 and about 2.5 million around the year 2000. This rapid urban growth already has had far-reaching effects on agriculture. Not only does urban growth require additional land, but it has effects on the use of land that remains in agriculture. This study reviews and analyzes several of these effects.
