Most people believe that tariffs and subsidies are anathema in the world of global commerce. I don’t think either will be critical to the agricultural community 10 years from now. The push for farm subsidies is already moving in the direction of innovation in agriculture as opposed to overwhelmingly toward production.
Two factors are driving this: cost and food security.
Among the many changes that millennials are driving is the push toward locally owned, locally sourced and sustainable food. Mini-greenhouses and small farms are popping up in the most unlikely places, such as a former parking lot across the river from New York City.
