I’m not sure how interested “entrepeneurs” will be in investing in sustainable agriculture. If it doesn’t make “top dollar” for them tomorrow, they’ll be outta here. Government needs to be involved with a “carrot & stick” approach if we hope to guide the world away from present, dominant methods. These, of course include monocropping, generally mining the soil by drenching it with ever-increasing volumes of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers & producing copious, climate-killing greenhouse gases. Unless we get off the “Agri-Biz” treadmill soon, we won’t get very far.
