The Agricultural Land Use (ALU) Plan is to inventory the history, crops and farming practices of the agricultural community in Pitt County. Information compiled in this plan will provide guidance for future trends in agriculture and its contributions to the citizens and economy. Additional support and recognition to agriculture can be gained by proper planning and development of programs that address the need for agricultural commodities and protection of the natural resources used for production.
This plan recognizes the needed planning for the future of agriculture in Pitt County. By identifying that over 1,400 acres of farm/forest land has been incorporated by municipalities and that farm/forest land acreage has been greatly decreased, measures need to be taken to protect this economic and heritable resource.
