How simple the farmers' problem would be if there were no such things as change in the world, no changes in soils, cultural practice, markets, population, birth rates, and a thousand other things. But, the principal fact the farmer faces, is that all these things do change. These have been enormous changes in a comparatively few years and he has had to adjust himself to them. For instance, in 1920, farmers had to feed a total population of 105 million people ( excluding exports for populations abroad) now about the same number of farmers feed over 150 million here.
