I would think that would be a hefty portion on his plate.
All of these royal estates have factors and professional estate managers looking after the day-to-day. As for the planning and taking the long view, Charles' knowledge of animal husbandry, horticulture, dendrology, arable farming etc. is pretty formidable at this point and I think he's quite well-equipped to take on these responsibilities.

The question in my mind is, will his well-established views on organic farming, GM crops and non-mechanical farming methods (horses instead of tractors) cause friction with the factors and farmers who are entrusted to make money for the estates while keeping a lid on costs?

Charles may well ask William or maybe even Harry to take on some of the roles to do with the Estates.
