Mr. Toly says farmers are blamed for high food prices, pesticide abuses, (ecd-lol pollution, lack of safety in machinery operation and unsatisfactory government programs.

Farmers have countered v.'itli a defence of agriculture that made the farmer out lo be a superstar with the industry the most productive, efficient and most competitive segment of the economy. "In a lime when labor constantly asks more for doing less and the inclination for big business is lo run for shelter from government, agriculture h s slood alone as a business which could compete in svnvH markets while making a profil." farmers are asking icy? selves if they just aren't stooges, Mr. Toly says. "Why can't we announce a price increase to cover our in-creased costs and protect our profit margins and why can't wo demand eosl -of -living clauses in our contract with Hie Farmers are asking why Ihey must, always be 'helping the nation" when other segments of the economy are bettering their own lot at the expense of the country." Of course, he says, there is no answer and farmers always will be fragmented because they remain in agriculture for the love of it, at least that's what they tell each other.

"The Irulb is whatever nur problems, we arc necessary and have earned the right to assert our importance with pride and dignity.
