Legal Frameworks for the Assessment of Agricultural Lands




Agricultural Land Assessment, Legal Frameworks, Land Valuation Legislation, Agricultural Practices, Geographic Information Systems (GIS)


This study examines the legal frameworks governing the assessment of agricultural lands, focusing on the challenges and implications of existing regulations and suggesting improvements for more effective land management. Assessing agricultural land is crucial for determining its value, taxation, and eligibility for government subsidies, which directly impacts agricultural productivity and sustainability.The research methodology involves a comparative analysis of legislation in different jurisdictions, highlighting best practices and identifying gaps in current legal frameworks. Through this analysis, the study addresses how legal provisions align with the practical needs of agricultural development and land conservation, as well as discussing the impact of these laws on farmers, landowners, and the broader economic landscape.Key findings reveal that many existing laws are outdated and do not adequately accommodate modern agricultural practices or the challenges posed by climate change. The study also identifies a lack of consistency in the application of these laws, leading to disparities in land assessment and management across regions.Recommendations include integrating advanced geographic information systems (GIS) for more precise land valuation, adopting environmentally sustainable practices in legal criteria, and enhancing legal clarity to reduce administrative burdens on landowners.This research is intended for policymakers, legal experts, and stakeholders in the agricultural sector. It provides a comprehensive overview of the legal issues surrounding agricultural land assessment and proposes actionable solutions to enhance the effectiveness of these legal frameworks. By reforming agricultural land assessment laws, countries can better support their agricultural sectors, promoting economic stability and sustainable development.
