Tomato Blight

This is an excellent account from a farmer about the problems with Tomato Blight and commercial agriculture.  A must read.  It speaks to the spread of disease, but like we have witnessed the spread of health crisis in the past.  The question is - do we ban all shipment of plants and thrwat commercial agriculture?  Do we set up subsidies for farmers at risk of losing a big percentage of their annual income?  What is the solution to this?  Email me here, if you have some thoughts -
