ABSTRACT
The author emphasizes the need for England to invest in colleges to effectively respond to the challenge of producing more food for the nation. The author believes that England needs a dedicated college with regional centers to educate their young and to provide a free advisory service to help improve management efficiency and agricultural productivity. The author thinks that the government's withdrawal of its near market research is the reason why yields and production have stagnated in the country.
