If I promise not to hold you to your answers (speculative prediction
is, afterall, speculative), I post here a question to prime the
mental pumps as 1996 begins:
What do you see happening in the field of sustainable
agriculture between now and the year 2000 (only 4years away)?
1. Agribusiness getting more alligned (identifed) with the SA
movement. Companies will begin to market the "SUSTAINABLE"
adjective along the lines as "NEW AND IMPROVED".
2. As Extension is trained and programatically moves toward SA
practices, financial institutions (banks and lending agencies)
will be more willing to loan money for the more "alternative"
3. GIS and GPS will become more and more integrated as useful
tools in agriculture of whatever type. The cost of the
technology will drop to the point where the price of the
information obtained is justified by the practice.
So what do you see happening? What will happen in the schools?
What will happen in the market place? Anyone what to take a
swing at what will happen in Washington?
It's good to be back.
