    I'm amazed that there has been a 6-fold increase in productivity per farmer since 1970. And if these figures don't include farm staff, there has been a massive reduction in farm staff:farmer, so the increase in productivity would be even higher.

    And this despite the increased time spent on dealing with rules and regulations.

    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.
