I want to complain about this content:

  • There seems to be a misconception that the purpose of farming is to 'grow', or more correctly to produce food. This is incorrect. Farming is a business. Its purpose is to make money. In part this is achieved through producing food, although this becomes less attractive where big business, e.g. supermarkets, are hell bent on screwing their suppliers. I am thinking particularly about the dairy sector. What aspect of food production do people imagine is served by the swathes of yellow that dominate the landscape every Spring, or the tonnes of sugar beet being moved on the roads currently. Man cannot live on Mars bars alone, or on bioethanol at all. If there is money in food production then food will continue to be produced, but if there's more profit to be 'grown' from solar then so be it.
