Can Farms Bounce Back from Storms Like Sandy?
Tom Philpott has an interesting article on the stresses of chaotic weather on farming and ranching. He makes a good point that industrial forms of production are not very resilient in the face of such weather because they operate on the assumption of cheap inputs and good weather. We are in the age of rising energy and other input costs and chaotic weather. Will the country's farmers and ranches adopt a better agronomic model in time?
