Betting on the Ranch

Private investment funds are pouring a lot of money into global agriculture according to the NYT - everything from farm land, grain silos, ethanol plants and the barges to move it all around.  Nobody is going to argue that the sector is over-invested but it makes the nominal farmer in me nervous. 

PS - Jatropha is no panacea.
