  •  small commercial enterprises vs. international (0+ / 0-)

    corporations, both want to make maximum profit out of their land ... if it is "their" land. The larger the corporations the less interested they are to think about those whose land they bought off or leased from.

    If a small commercial enterprise can't pay the lease for any additional land he wants to have to increase his output and profit, or if small farming enterprises can't be created anymore, because the land is gone and owned by "big boys", there is not even a discussion about what  farming methods to use, but how much the lease or the land costs.

    Organic farming too is mostly done because it's more profitable to the small farming enterprise.... and consumer can't afford to buy potatos at $ 6.00 per 5 pounds ... etc.
