LONG-TERM FARMING

The average age of farmers continues to increase and, according to Illinois Farm Bureau’s Executive Director of Operations for News & Communications Chris Magnuson, new technology and increased regulations could play a role in farmers’ reluctance to retire. “Technology allows farmers to just be more productive,” Magnuson said. “And of course, the number of acres don’t increase, in fact they decrease a little with urbanizations, and so farmers can farm more.” (Illinois News Network)
