Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Damn, I knew I had forgotten a couple paragraphs in the end. Thanks for writing them ! :)

Another point made by Mazoyer is that large-scale farms are actually quite inefficient ; that economies of scale happen only up to 5-7 workers per production units, and that after that you meet diseconomies of scale.

Also, the amount of food GDP going to the producer will rise again : even France or the US spend ~15% of GDP on food, but most of that goes to Agrobusiness and supermarket nowadays, not farmers. i.e. food prices for the end buyer need not rise that much.
