Okay. I'll be quick.
Turning to the potato growers, I understand that you're sitting on a lot of inventory. Growing up on a potato farm myself, I'm very familiar with how this industry works. I'm still involved a little bit. We have a lot of input costs. It costs a lot per acre. In the U.S. we've seen some of the processing potato farmers having to disk under their crops.
You mentioned, I believe, around $90 million worth of processing inventory. The government has come out with $50 million, which obviously is a drop in the bucket and won't even touch nearly half of what's left over for the processing sector. Do you see them cutting back a lot of acres this year, then, just because of the decrease in demand on the commercial versus retail side of things?
