The article looks at grain marketing in Great Britain as of September 2007. It states that crop production will increase in the region and in abroad and it can be attained through improved plant breeding and land cultivation. It emphasizes the need to study and address the issue of genetic modification which should cover the environmental advantages of such technology. The author encourages farmers to ensure early application of spring nitrogen on wheat in case another dry spell occurs.
