    If you are a corn and soybean (and wheat to an extent) grower in the midwest, you're not waiting for a jackpot. You have been receiving a jackpot since 2004. As I mentioned up thread, the farm economy has been roaring for grain farmers while the broader economy has been faltering. These guys are making Money. Why change what's working, right?

    A few farmers see what might be coming...but it's a tiny minority. We may be able to witness the remaking of agriculture in our lifetimes whether grumpy, old, conservative farmers want to or not.
