We show that in dimensions two or more a sequence of long range contact processes suitably rescaled in space and time converges to a super-Brownian motion with drift. As a consequence of this result we can improve the results of Bramson, Durrett, and Swindle (1989) by replacing their order of magnitude estimates of how close the critical value is to 1 with sharp asymptotics.
