Problems with "Model" Farms
This is a good analysis of efforts to model different and better ways of doing farming. I'm a lot older than the author, so we both may be stuck in the past. Underlying a lot of the analysis is a more general law which applies in education and medicine: replication will kill you. That is, a "model" farm that actually works for a number of years, and many such ventures don't, may fail when replicated to other environments.
