Yes - without getting into the forbidden subject - that's the
impression I get from reading the papers and listening to the Archers
on Radio 4 (I think the Archers has been discussed here before, but
it's a long running radio everyday tale of country folk, which has a
agricultural story editor on the staff, and everything I know about
farming comes from the Archers)

There's a big storyline at the moment about bio-digesters, which will
take argicultural and other waste to create energy.
