Agriculture: The Sector Has Been a Disaster For 35 Years

Jim Rogers talked agricultural commodities with Money Morning recently and he shared some very interesting stats and facts about the industry:

"The agriculture sector has been a disaster for 35 years. Things are so bad. The average age of an American farmer is 58, the average age in Japan is 68. And do you know that the highest suicide rate in the UK is in the agricultural sector?"
