The Business of AgricultureThe business of agriculture is the “capturing, packaging and marketing of sunlight, to receive solar dollars". Whether your return is in dollars, pounds, euro, yen, franc, or renminbi, the principle still applies.
Only farmers enjoy the privilege of endlessly creating new solar currency. Mineral dollars are not renewable! When well managed, a farm readily becomes a currency growth-place. Think of it like this: farmers who create more effective ecosystem processes on their land end up producing more plants with more leaf area, and more leaf area means more sunlight is captured. The more sunlight that is captured the more product there is to market, and the more new currency there is to receive back in return. It really is a virtuous circle!
This sequence of capturing, packaging and marketing sunlight is called the ‘Solar Production Chain to New Wealth', and there are just three links in the chain:
- Sunlight capturing occurs at the Resource Conversion Link
- Packaging or converting the resource into a potentially salable product happens at the Product Conversion Link
- The products created are then turned into money at the Marketing Link
