Agriculture’s increase in technology from the late 1800s to the early 1900s caused a steady migration from the family farms to the cities, leaving fewer people to assume the burden of producing more food. This has only been exacerbated in the past ten to twenty years by the development and adoption of GPS guidance systems, a heavy emphasis on efficiency and precision application when planting, growing and harvesting crops.

In 1993, Glaub Farm Management was started out of the home I had just purchased. The office consisted of a desk in the living room and two interns working in the front bedroom.

Goodbye, generic base. Congress recently passed changes to the farm bill via a disaster bill that adds seed cotton to Title I commodity programs. The 2014 Farm Bill excluded cotton from Title I due to lawsuits filed by Brazil through the World Trade Organization (WTO); now, Congress hopes to avoid future WTO challenges by using seed cotton instead of cotton lint.
