The technological changes taking place in farming practices today are occurring as a much faster rate than a decade or two ago. In many ways, farmers are applying techniques and practices used in industrial business to their own operations. The average farm size has continually increased and today many farms are enough like a large business that the industrial practices apply directly. The shortage of qualified labor has plagued farmers for some time, and many of the new machines and practices attempt to replace labor with capital as a direct result of these shortages.
