The author looks at the performance of the agricultural industry in Great Britain for the past 50 years. According to him, the past 50 years have left the sector with a good rather than a bad legacy. He says that while some common traits obviously emerge, the differences are also striking. He adds that young farmers can face a brave new world with greater confidence despite of the low returns during the period.
