    Dit rapport beschrijft vier trendbreuken in de grondgebonden landbouw die zich in de komende decennia kunnen voordoen. In de eerste twee trendbreuken blijft Nederland georiënteerd op de wereldmarkt. In het eerste geval via een verregaande specialisatie op zuivel, in het tweede via een verregaande rationalisering van het productieproces leidend tot het verdwijnen van het gezinsbedrijf met eigen grond. In de twee laatste trendbreuken is de oriëntatie minder internationaal.
