Abstract

This article offers a discussion of the U.S. agricultural sector and its current focus on an industrialized model of production.

The article was prepared for the inaugural symposium of the Agricultural and Food Law Institute in South Korea, “The Conservation and Conversion of Farm Land” held at Yeungnam University Law School in Gyeongsan, South Korea.
