Next Generation Farmers
Sustaining Next Generation Farming
Sustaining the Next Generation Farmers allows for food and textile needs to be met while preserving soil quality, water, and reducing land erosion. Due to the growth of the population, researchers say that agriculture production could have to grow as much as 60% to meet the food demand. Based on those calculations, the need for new farming ventures and sustain current farming operations is critical.
Sustaining the next generation farmers usually fall into two problem areas: First, the expense of beginning a new farming operation and second is the “What Next” for the aging farm-owners
The cost of a new farming venture is enormous. You need capital, well maintained equipment line, high quality workforce, agronomic advisors, many systems for checks and balances, knowledge with experience, and last the most important land. The cost of land is high and the available farmland that can produce is decreasing. If you are a farmer needing guidance or want to start farming venture contact Kaleb Dinwiddie.
