Comment of the week
“On the subject of company size.
The minimum farm size is one that supports the farmer and his family. This, of course, requires a smaller area of land that is more productive and fertile. Only an ivory tower theorist would argue that the size of the farms is more likely to promote fertility than the other way around.
What we are actually seeing in my farming community is that agricultural productivity is closely related to the farmer’s expertise and willingness to use the most productive technology. It is the experienced farmer who is most profitable and therefore most likely to buy more land and grow their farms. Technology is also expensive, which means that larger operations can more easily afford the most productive technology and pay the higher wages necessary to attract the best quality employees. “
