I want to say something in a tough-love kind of way about crop insurance. Let’s face it: You don’t buy insurance on your house hoping it will burn down. Neither do we want to buy crop insurance and hope our crop fails so we can file.
I was raised – my mom and dad were dairy farmers. Once you’ve made a decision to plant a crop for that year, you can’t go back and undo that decision.
There may be some backward countries where the mass of the people are on a subsistence level and where, as an aftermath of wars or partial crop failures, the standard of living has to be drastically reduced, but this certainly is not the case in our prosperous nations.
Charles E. Wilson
Agriculture involves crop husbandry, animal husbandry, forestry and fisheries. Your income will go up only if you look at the system, and not from one crop alone.
M. S. Swaminathan
I always liked crop tops after I saw it on ‘Fresh Prince.’
When you crop the photo, you tell a lie.
I believe crop tops can be worn with literally anything, but I think it’d be really cool to pair them with track pants.
In the southern half of the country perhaps no crop has larger possibilities for quick increase of production of food for both men and animals than the sweet potato.
David F. Houston
Even a two-degree climb in average global temperatures could cause crop failures in parts of the world that can least afford to lose the nourishment. The size of deserts would increase, along with the frequency and intensity of wildfires.
Working with food was fraught with anxiety when I was a girl. Like all farmers, we were at the mercy of the weather, and we lived in fear of crop failure.
Bobbie Ann Mason
I wear crop tops and stuff, but I genuinely like that style, so it’s just has to be genuine. Once you start getting to that world where you’re using sexuality to try to propel something, you’re losing the moment. You’ve lost; people are not focusing on that anymore.
Having grown up on a family farm, I am all too familiar with the effects a drought can have on a crop.
It’s going to take a while before we see a real shift in the students and the dancers that are going into professional companies because it takes so many years of training, but I do think that there’s a new crop of dancers, of minority dancers that are entering into the ballet world.
Strong, smart, self-reliant women who don’t need men to define them only crop up in the human myth-base in one guise – the Wicked Witch.
Richard K. Morgan
Changes to weather patterns that move crop production areas around – we’ll adapt to that. It’s an engineering problem, and it has engineering solutions.
2010 is the International Year of Biodiversity. We can classify our crops into those which are climate resilient and those which are climate sensitive. For example, wheat is a climate sensitive crop, while rice shows a wide range of adaptation in terms of growing conditions.
M. S. Swaminathan
You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are 20-something, or the new crop of actresses, and think, Aren’t we kind of the same age?
Corn is the leading food and feed crop of the United States in geographic range of production, acreage, and quantity of product. The vital importance of a large acreage of this crop, properly cared for, therefore, is obvious.
David F. Houston
I think part of being human is learning to roll with the punches, to deal with any kind of personal or professional disaster that might crop up. You have to learn to deal with that stuff or not survive.
The value of the beans for oil production, as well as for human food, has become recognized so quickly and so generally during the past year that the crop has acquired a commercial standing far in excess of its previous status.
David F. Houston
It is impossible to talk about slowing climate change without talking about reducing CO2 emissions. Equally, it is impossible to talk about adapting to climate change without considering how we will feed ourselves. And it is out of the question that we can adapt agriculture without conserving crop diversity.
At the Global Crop Diversity Trust, we work to conserve the diversity that will allow the adaptation and evolution of our agricultural crops in the context of climate change and other challenges.
We have to get out of the mindset that, ‘If I invest $1 in crop insurance, I want to make sure I get a $1.10 or plus out of that.’
If the rain spoils our picnic, but saves a farmer’s crop, who are we to say it shouldn’t rain?
I think it’s ironic when Plato makes the learned woman Aspasia Socrates’ teacher, but I think women crop up more in the Platonic dialogues than they do normally in texts of the period, and in an un-hysterical way.
Corn is already the most subsidized crop in America, raking in a total of $51 billion in federal handouts between 1995 and 2005 – twice as much as wheat subsidies and four times as much as soybeans. Ethanol itself is propped up by hefty subsidies, including a fifty-one-cent-per-gallon tax allowance for refiners.
The public should know that the liability issues here have yet to be resolved, or even raised. If you’re a farmer and you’re growing a genetically engineering food crop, those genes are going to flow to the other farm.
I for one believe that we absolutely need an improved guest worker program, one that holds immigrants and employers accountable and yet still enables us to get a crop out of the ground in south Georgia.
The consumerist culture insists that swearing eternal loyalty to anything and anybody is imprudent, since in this world new glittering opportunities crop up daily.

That’s one of the great things about poetry; one realises that one does one’s little turn – that you’re just part of the great crop, as it were.
When I left the army and took up farming, the wheat crop would be over your head and yet we wouldn’t have enough.
Buckwheat may be planted later than any similar crop, and often does well on old meadows or waste land that can be broken after the more exacting crops are planted.
David F. Houston
For the Gulf States, perhaps no forage crop of which the available seed supply is relatively abundant exceeds the velvet bean in potential value. This legume possesses also the ability to make a crop when planted relatively late.
David F. Houston
Do we really want to continue to push out the envelope of survival only to see other things crop up that we may not like?
S. Jay Olshansky
I enjoyed my 15 years at the top, and now I enjoy watching the current crop. What I did, maybe they can’t do, and what they do, perhaps I couldn’t do. It’s like that. I wanted to simply be the best. On a professional level, I wanted to be No. 1, and I worked hard to be that.
Programs aimed strictly at the poorest Americans are always and forever under assault from a Republican Party that still has not dared to cut spending on programs – like Medicare and crop insurance – that also benefit the rich.
You can classify farmers into two major groups. One who saves seeds for the next crop and the other who purchases seeds from the market. Most of the commercial farmers like the US farmers are people who purchase seeds.
M. S. Swaminathan
I did extensive, extensive recordings and made a classical CD-ROM set, which is still on the market. For ten years, it was by itself as the cream of the crop of samples.
With few exceptions, the publishing industry has come to a consensus: if a book has a young protagonist, and if its worldview is primarily interested in the questions that crop up when coming of age, then it’s a young adult novel.
I love being scared, and I always have done. When I was younger, I was always reading books about the paranormal, UFOs, and crop circles. I liked the idea of people seeing faces in walls and twins that could communicate with each other telepathically. I really believed it, too!
If I had more confidence, I would rock a crop top.
The goal of any farmer, after producing enough to feed his own family, has always been to find the best place to sell the year’s crop.
I am wrestling with the overalls trend. I wore so many pairs in junior high, and no one thought they were cute. Perhaps I’ll try them cuffed with a tasteful crop top?
I’m glad about what’s happening to the music business. This last crop of people we had in the 90s, who are going away now, they didn’t like music. They didn’t trust musicians. They wanted something else from it.
‘Sanctus’ deals with creation myths in every culture. It fascinates me that all cultures, evolving independently, have similar models of mankind’s origins, of a Greater Being, of the flood, and so on. It’s amazing how they crop up time and time again.
As people around the world become more affluent, they are demanding diets richer in animal protein, which will require ever more robust feed crop yields to sustain.
Year after year, we see a new crop of musicians who do their best to look tough in lipstick and makeup. Maybe it’s a cry for help, an admission of their strong feminine side, or the realization that they don’t look so good any other way. Whatever the reason, makeup is as rock n’ roll as a Marshall stack.
It becomes a giant’s task to compute the result when the effect of cross seas, wind at all angles and ever varying force, arched surfaces, head resistance, ratio of weight to area, and the intelligence of the guiding power crop up.
Don’t crop ears or tails or declaw cats; it’s really painful. People think it’s necessary, but it’s painful for the animal, and it’s completely unnecessary.
Onstage, I channel my inner goddess. Everyday Jillian is definitely more low-key: jeans and a crop top with a sneaker or boot.

Drones watch for disease and collect real-time data on crop health and yields.
I have to confess that I’ve never been a great fan of Christmas or, as it’s known in our house, The Monster That Ate the Last Third of the Year. It’s mostly the rampant consumerism I object to, but I’m also a little wary of the annual crop of new Christmas stories and sometimes wonder why anyone bothers.
I don’t know if Nashville will ever be ousted as the Music City. But I also think that here, over the last few years, Georgia has definitely kind of risen to the top as far as the crop of young artists coming out of this area that are kind of making waves, you know?
Empowering small farmers to increase productivity, improve crop quality and access reliable markets is critical to addressing global hunger and poverty.
Sylvia Mathews Burwell
Evolution has made us omnivores, and substantial quantities of meat can be produced by feeding plant matter whose production does not directly compete with growing food crops: crop residues, food processing waste, low-quality grain, and controlled grazing by ruminants.
When it comes to vampires, Daniel Gillies’s Elijah is the cream of the crop. Since leaving ‘The Vampire Diaries’ to headline ‘The Originals,’ we’ve seen the brother of Klaus grow from the altruistic, steadfast, suit-wearing stud into a complicated, nuanced lead.
I’ll wear a crop top if I’m not loving my stomach because it kind of forces me to pay attention to it and to love it, really.
I have a particular pair of boyfriend jeans that I wear with Converse sneakers and, really, any kind of top, from a crop top to a hoodie. I usually go for a loose top or jacket to keep things casual with sort of a streetwear vibe.
Sometimes sugarcane takes about 15 months to grow, and hence it is inappropriate to ask farmers to pay their crop loans in 12 months.
Crop tops with high waist skirts and palazzos with a lot of glitter have a very party vibe to it.
I’m in the position to pick the cream of the crop.
