Helps planning authorities, developers, surveyors and land use managers work with agricultural land. Agricultural land classification: frequently asked questions Describes how the quality of farm land is graded and what this grade means for landowners. Agricultural land conversion (ALC) is an incentive-driven process. In this paper, we further investigate the inter-relationship between land economic value (LEV) and ALC. To achieve this goal, we calculated the LEV for agricultural and non-agricultural (housing) uses in two areas of East Java, Indonesia. The first area represents peri-urban agriculture, which is facing rapid urbanization and Cited by: Agricultural Land Classification map West Midlands Region: ALC /08/ Agricultural Land Classification of England and Wales ALC /10/ Agricultural Land Classification of England and Wales: Revised criteria for grading the quality of agricultural land: ALC /10/ Climatalogical Data for Agricultural Land. The agricultural area, excluding woodland, accounts for 72% of the total area of land. The agricultural area has declined by aro hectares per year over the past 20 years. Reasons for this include transport infrastructure, building, woodland expansion (which has more than doubled over the past 20 years), nonagricultural use (golf.

This report, published by MAFF in October , provides revised criteria for grading the quality of agricultural land using the Agricultural Land Classification (ALC) of England and Wales. The Agricultural Land Classification provides a framework for classifying land according to the extent to which its physical or chemical characteristics impose long- term limitations on agricultural use.   Lle - Data - Predictive Agricultural Land Classification (ALC) Map - The Predictive ALC map for Wales is based on the principles of the Agricultural Land Classification System of England & Wales, the Revised Guidelines & Criteria for Grading the Quality of Agricultural Land (MAFF ).

Regional differences are very marked. Agricultural regions such as Northumberland contrast with urban areas such as Sheffield (see images). Even the same type of land use can be expressed differently in different areas - for example the contrast between agribusiness in East Anglia and sheep farming in North Wales.

  UK Agricultural Land Use. The total agricultural area in Scotland, including common grazing, totalled million hectares in , representing 80 per cent of the total land area in Scotland. This proportion of total land cover is slightly higher than England (73 percent and Northern Ireland (77 per cent) but lower than Wales (90 per cent).   For England and Wales it is possible to estimate the contiguous urban area using the urban area definitions discussed above. Using that approach, the aggregate of ‘areas of urban land’ in England and Wales in is estimated at million hectares, or per cent of the land area, using the data set produced by OS for what is now CLG.
