USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has published Georgia’s Land: Its Use and Condition – 4th Edition. This publication is a product of the National Resources Inventory (NRI) program, an effort that tracks land use changes and resource condition trends. The publication reports that during the 30 years from 1982 to 2012 there was a net reduction of Georgia cropland by 2.6 million acres. Meanwhile, 2.4 million acres were developed into urban land and rural transportation. This represents a doubling of developed land in 30 years. The complete document is available online.
