Townsend, New Hampshire commissioner of Agriculture. Townsend, chairman of the Agricultural Lands Preser- vation Committee, said the state has completed the purchase of development rights on eight farms. Two hundred additional acres are under negotiation. The pur- chase assures that the land will remain in agricultural production to help meet the food needs of New Hampshire residents. The New Hampshire legislature mandated the protection of "our best agricultural land" through the Agricultural Lands Preser- Vation program. The program is a step in implementation of the state's Food Policy, en- domed by the Legislature and the Governor in 1979. Townsend said the goal of the Food Policy is to reduce our dependence on imported food, which now stands at 85 percent. "Land is the ingredient we cannot do without. We can talk about increasing production till we're blue in the face, but without the land, we can grow nothing."
