Nature and Context

Growers cannot afford to be loyal; they need to be profitable. Farm bankruptcies are up 24%, leading to more retirements and consolidation. International competition is cutting into the U.S. market share. Two-thirds of beginning farmers hold off-the-field jobs. 99% of growers do not have a marketing strategy, with disruptors getting their attention.
