While I appreciate that farms are definitely being lost, this map might also point to farm amalgamation and ever larger farms. This is also not a good trend since bigger, corporate farms need massive energy and chemical inputs and usually grow monocrops of genetically modified soy or corn.

How long could you live on just soy and corn because that's all that's being grown out here?
