Florida authorities actively preserve farmland

In 2022, Florida became the fastest growing state for the first time since 1957. By 2030, its population will be 25 million people. At the same time, the leadership of Florida is working hard to ensure that it remains as attractive from all points of view as before. The authorities currently retain more agricultural land in the state than ever before.

In May of this year, the state authorities approved the allocation of $100 million to preserve more than 16,000 hectares of land, including more than 7,000 hectares of existing agricultural land. Such actions are part of the Florida Forever program, as well as the Rural Land Protection Program. This means that cattle breeding and agriculture will continue in these territories, and residential and commercial development will be prohibited.

Agriculture has a significant impact on the state's economy. Farmlands provide food for Americans every day. Accordingly, the preservation of these lands guarantees the preservation of developed infrastructure in Florida.

According to analytics compiled by the Bureau of Economic Business and Research of the University of Florida, 1,200 people move to Florida every day, and the state's population has exceeded 22 million residents this year.
