Top of Mind Opinions

March 5, 2010 10:03 AM

Even though the official program of the Ag Executive Forum hosted by Farm Journal and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers was off the record, we used our networking lunch to conduct an informal poll. Using handheld, immediate-response polling devices that allow each attendee to quickly voice his or her opinion with the push of a button, we surveyed the agribusiness executives and top-level producers in the crowd.

A snapshot of the results is pre-sented below. In addition to these results, the group also overwhelmingly responded that:

  •  the Barack Obama administration is not good for global agriculture;
  •  farms will become larger; and
  •  land will remain primarily in the hands of U.S. farmers and absentee landowners versus global owners.

The next Ag Executive Forum will be held at Ag Connect Expo 2011 in Atlanta next January.
