Together toward a (not so) new agricultural vision: the rag picker's call
While we are still recovering from the Lower House elections and preparing for a new cabinet, tempers continue to run high in the agriculture debate. Nitrogen, glyphosate, climate change, animal welfare; it is clear that the conversation is at an impasse in many areas. "We need a vision!" it often sounds then in farm country. But is the problem really a lack of vision or rather a surplus? What we really need is a story that brings together the best of existing visions, supplemented with new insights. So let's work on that: a vision that makes everyone happy. And let's not underestimate the help of the rag-and-bone man.
