The article focuses on the agriculture sector in the U.S. which is seen to lead the recovery from its latest economic recession. It indicates the prosperity of farming in terms of balance sheet and income sheet whose net farm income topped 103 billion U.S. dollars. It cites the rise in price of agricultural land which is the reason behind the 2 trillion U.S. dollars net equity in farms. It notes that a failure to keep supply and demand in harmony can be a negative factor in agriculture growth.
