Boom Times for Swedish Farmers

Published torsdag 24 april 2008 kl 12.14

Swedish farmers are reporting their best economic times in 20 years - with profits so high that for the first time in decades, more Swedes are thinking of starting careers in farming than those deciding to quit.

Adding to the boom-times – increased exports of that once-poorly regarded Swedish potato - now on sale in 15 different European countries and new markets opening up  in developing areas..

The reason: the soaring prices of grain and other cereals sparking riots and protests from starving crowds around the world  … and  the discovery of the high food quality of that rather inexpensive potato.
