Agriculture is increasingly under environmental scrutiny and the pressure will only get worse. The pressure comes from activist groups teaming with trial lawyers, politicians out to control food choice, and wealthy individuals such as Bill Gates whose motives may not be as philanthropic as he portrays. I see calls to tax meat — especially beef — and dairy products under the guise of curing climate change. I also see more lawsuits on the heels of Bayer’s $11.6 billion settlement. And, you can count on more federal regulation of farming practices. So how can Ag win? By staying away from the science.
