    •  I knew something about it (0+ / 0-)

      When I was a kid, I learned a lot about modern, mechanical agriculture from my dad. Though he hadn't farmed since he had gone off to college to learn ag education, he had taught it for a couple of decades. I had learned about modern farming procedures in the late '60s and early '70s, back when Farm Journal was impressed with the few farmers who were managing to get 100 bushel/acre corn. Now, those farmers are probably getting 250-300 bushels/acre and the average is about 150 bu/acre.
