Why? Does anyone really think that this will lower the cost of production? Who will pay the cost? The farmer, then the consumer. It is only replacing man power with machine power. What are we going to do with the people? We already have 15-20% or more of the population sitting on their butt doing nothing now. And in a couple more years it will be all the tractors and combines, then the irrigation...no labor needed, allowing one farmer to farm almost unlimited acres, eliminating more farmers from the land. Farmers, as my dad would say, "be careful what you ask for, you just might get it." I would say resources would be better spent on developing the drought, disease, and insect resistant crops to insure supply rather than eliminating more workers, as much of a hassle as they are, and making them government dependent. The days of "Big Brother" are fast approaching, and technology is his best friend. Just my two cents worth.
