TAGHKANIC, N.Y. (AP) - The push continues to preserve farms in the Hudson Valley.

Officials from valley conservation groups and government agencies are set to announce new actions to preserve prime agricultural land. Development has spread across the Hudson Valley in recent decades, putting more pressure on farmers.

The conservation group Scenic Hudson will announce the initiative Tuesday afternoon at a farm in Columbia County. They will be joined by representatives of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Columbia Land Conservancy, the Dutchess Land Conservancy and Columbia County.
