What is Headlands?

What is Headlands?

The headlands are the area around the perimeter of a field, the space to make the turn for another long swipe. My hope is that we can similarly create the conceptual space for a turn of sorts. We are facing a number of challenges in agriculture, such as rising costs of production, increasing consumer demands, increasing regulation, soaring land prices and environmental concerns. 

Now is the time for some truly visionary thinking.  

First and foremost, the rants and commentary expressed here are meant to provoke thought and discussion, not arguments. I want to see a resilient agricultural sector that will benefit farmers, the environment and the public. And the next generation.
