I totally agree that if future farmers don't build the next generation, then it's the next generation that will fail. Farming is becoming a much more technological endeavor, such as GPS-based watering and fruit-to-market software. I believe even with GTIN labeling, farmers could even see how much of their crop was purchased by grocery stores, if they could tap into the data.
All this does require an education. Farming isn't your father's business anymore!
