good question

The most amazing fact is that USDA has reported that the earnings for the entire year in 2004 for farm operator households from their farming activities are only $1,226, or about $100 per month.� My question is this: how much more efficient must farmers become before they can get paid a decent return for the fruits of their labor?
Meanwhile [St. L. B.J.]:
Monsanto Co., Pioneer Hi-Bred International Inc. and Ceres Inc. will team up to share their corn genome sequence data through a database hosted by the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, the National Corn Growers Association said Monday.

The St. Louis-based association said with the sequencing data available, the corn genome could be completely sequenced by 2007.
