Agriculture is undergoing a revolution in the 21st century. After the first green revolution in the 1960's where crops yield became the most important factor in farming, pressures on farmers to increase yield without clearing more land has been mounting. At the turn of the century farming had hit rock bottom with many farmers selling up or going out of business, but farming is coming back as demand for fuel and food soars. The world population is increasing at an alarming rate and the worlds food and fuel supply is struggling to keep up. As such the prices of crops is rising and so profitability is once again possible. Add to this an increased home demand for organic produce, which some consumers are prepared to pay more for.
