Keeping Farmland Available for
Klickitat County Agriculture:
Report to the Klickitat County Comission


Introduction:
The success of any business turns upon its ability to assemble the inputs required for profitable operation.  For agriculture, these might include land, capital, labor, water, energy, innovation, marketing, management, etc.  Land, in particular, often emerges as a critical issue – as a core necessity for agriculture and an especially costly one.  Land is usually at the heart of a farming operation so it takes on special importance for most farmers.  And, since continued use of land in agriculture is hugely important for the broader community, non-farmers also have an interest in the continued success of agricultural businesses.
