Abstract

During the second half of the 20th century entrepreneurs have transformed American agriculture from a cottage industry, with myriads of small farmers doing many different things, but none of them particularly well, into a highly specialized system of large-scale food production (Hart 2003). Individual farmers have become specialists in producing only the commodities their computers tell them are most profitable and competitive, and they have greatly enlarged the scale of their operations. - (IfL)
