So, what if both parties agree to keep their respective crops 175 feet from the property line? No lawyers filing and re-filing, no stalled government rulings -- on second thought, this is way too simple, considering this day of endless litigation.

I understand the land concept, Robert. My comment was as much about how people settle disagreement with lawsuits, rather than a compromised solution.

Like I said -- 'way to simple'!
