ABSTRACT
The author expresses his opinion on the high grain prices in the nineteen seventies which led to a push for production as food security became a priority. He cites the efforts of farmers to grow high yields in subsequent years. He recalls the growth of milk production and grain yields in 1984 in which quotas were introduced. He predicts the European Union will initiate plans to increase farm production.
