The author focuses on the economic conditions in Ireland as of January 2011. He mentions several reports about the conditions in the country which include the presence of houses left unfinished, an 85 billion-euro rescue package and the imminent downsizing of banks. He believes that such conditions will benefit Irish farmers as agriculture and the agri-food sector will lead in the economic recovery of the country. He asserts that England should also give value to farming.
