What are the benefits of agricultural district status?

In the majority of the cases, enrolling land in an agricultural district has these advantages:

  1. deferment of any new assessments for improvements (such as water or sewer systems) as long as the land remains in the district;

  2. legal protection against a nuisance lawsuit that is filed against any generally accepted agricultural practice used in the farming operation;

  3. limited protection against the use of eminent domain;

  4. protection from some zoning regulations.
