How is land classified?
Land is classified according to its capability of producing crops or forage. Capability is dependent upon soil type, topography, availability of irrigation water, growing season, and other factors. The county assessor classifies all agricultural land in the county based on Soil Conservation Service soil surveys and guidelines provided by the Tax Commission. The general classifications of agricultural land are: irrigated, dry land, grazing land, orchard, and meadow. If you disagree with your land classification, you can appeal to your county board of equalization for reclassification.
