Suddenly, it’s conference season in agbusiness world, and I’m moderating a panel on the risks and rewards of farmland acquisitions at Monday’s Ag 2.0 conference in San Francisco.  It’s been a fun task pulling together topic ideas with the rest of the panel, who range from a well respected agricultural economist to the CEO of an organic produce firm.  There are some divergent views on the panel on both the usual topics – GM, organics – and more esoteric ones, such as the putative farmland price bubble that even the New York Times has begun fretting about.  It should be a good discussion!
