As Brazil gets hit repeatedly by unusually low temperatures, destroying crops, the flooding in China, including Henan province — which accounts for 10% of their grains production — has damaged wheat, infrastructure, and thousands of large hog farms. All hopes are on US, which is also having its own issues.
This signals a huge red flag for worldwide production as these are the #1/2/3 producers/exporters of many grains. In fact, Brazil has started importing! Christian Westbrook explores what this means in this episode of the Ice Age Farmer broadcast.
Wheat crops are failing in the US, Canada, and Russia–the “breadbasket” top exporters that feed the rest of the world–as other exporters like Kazakhstan restrict their exports to protect their own people. Engineered attacks on supply chains continue from South Africa to Vietnam. Food prices are exploding as shortages can no longer be hidden, and the true crisis of global food shortages lies ahead. Grow your own food now! More from the Ice Age Farmer.
With the totals from the U.S. Department of Agriculture as 3% of Spring Wheat planted vs 25% in the 30 year average, and corn at 5% vs 16% for the average and descriptions as “despicable” and a “snail’s pace” for planting along with cold damage and drought across the central U.S. states they have described it as the “most stress” a wheat crop can handle. Adapt2030 has included a full timeline for crop losses moving forward to 2025 and this week’s incredible lack of planting. If this video doesn’t not wake you up, nothing will.
