Re: Food shortages materializing: Wheat, Oats, Hay

Article published yesterday says that wheat reserves of major grain exporters have dwindled down to levels last seen in 2007/2008, which triggered food riots across Africa and Asia.  Half of all wheat reserves are located in China, and China is not expected to release any onto the global marketplace, and in fact is likely to add to its own supply. 

By the end of the season, the large grain exporters are expected only to have a 26-day supply of wheat left.  It is further expected that wheat exporting nations will withhold supplies from international markets, leaving nations that depend upon grain imports with nothing.

All of the world's major wheat producers have been hit hard by unpredictable weather this year:
Argentina
Australia
Canada
the European Union
Kazakhstan
Russia
Ukraine
the U.S.

Germany is anticipating its lowest grain harvest in almost a quarter century.

Meat producers in Russia are complaining that exportation of the nation's grain is driving up prices of livestock feed, as would be the case in any country that exports.

This might be a good time for homesteaders to put away flour in the freezer, or buy loaves of good bread to double-bag and freeze while they are still affordable.  Ditto for bagels, English muffins, tortillas, pitas, buns, etc. if you don't plan on making them from scratch.  Better yet purchase hard wheat berries that store infinitely in lidded buckets or trash cans with DE and oxygen absorbers.

The same website also posted an article yesterday about the price of hay doubling in Canada. 

https://electroverse.net/canadas-cattle-herds-at-risk-as-hay-costs-double/

Here in PA, our family has been advised by Amish neighbors to buy all the local hay we can this month, because farmers are about to take it completely off the market so that their own animals will have enough for winter.  Town Hall readers who have livestock on small homesteads might want to grab some extra bales for the winter while they're still available @ around $5 each for 2-twine bale size.  Those who don't have a large enough barn to store it in can get Hefty 55-gallon contractor bags and double bag the bales, or throw a tarp over your stack.  Might want to plan on at least enough to get part-way through the 2019 hay-growing season, if not further, as we cannot predict what next year's weather will bring.

Now is also a good time to stock up on oats in large 25# sacks which are still a bargain @ around $12 each.  Oats have a natural vitamin E content that protects them from peroxidation, and store well for the long-term in a dry location.  I'm finding that granaries and co-ops in our area are running low on the large sacks, so availability is hit-or-miss right now, and it might be necessary to visit several locations in order to lay in a good supply.

Adding special prayers for those nations that depend upon imported grain in order to feed their people, and which may be denied the opportunity to purchase grain in the international marketplace soon and in years to come.  May healthy alternatives be found, and may the ever-shifting weather patterns bring new crops to market from countries benefiting from improved growing conditions, as we hear of rain and snow in places that were dry, and warmth in places that were cold.  May we find the right balance between the impulse to ensure our own national food security and the impulse to share with those less fortunate.

The drought in Mexico this summer has wiped out 280,000 hectares (a little under 700,000 acres) of beans and maize in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras according to a report just released from the U.N.  Millions of people are at risk of hunger as a result. 

Shortages are expected to drive up the cost of food purchased in stores, making it less affordable to subsistence farmers and their families. 

In the warmer climate of Central America, there is a chance for another November crop, but an anticipated El Nino weather pattern is predicted to compromise harvests.

Just a note of clarification:

In 2008, when food supplies were already inadequate, the population was roughly one billion people fewer than it is today.

@ around 6:00, David Dubyne of Adapt 2030 collates the crop loss data and feels confident in forecasting that South Africa is poised to experience the first societal breakdown as a result of a bleak future.  He explains that the main reason for projected hunger is not so much weather, but a race-based struggle to repossess land by killing off farmers, with farms being left fallow afterward due to lack of agricultural knowledge on the part of the new owners.  Hopefully the steep learning curve will be quickly mastered.

He further posits that the current civil unrest in that country may have been instigated by agents provocateurs in an effort by PTB to distract the populace from the food-price inflation and scarcity that are about to hit them.  If the people become inured to the constant presence of rioting in the streets for another reason, perhaps they will not blame the government when food insecurity is merely one contributing factor of several?

How much simpler, one wonders, might it have been to simply enlist the help of an informed populace and encourage every vacant lot to be repurposed as a community garden while there is still time to plant food?  Such lots, divided into small patches that even children and the elderly might enjoy tending, would also serve to:

*decentralize the burden of farming
*remove agribusiness chemical inputs
*teach the value of recycling waste
*make healthier food available to the masses
*redirect energy otherwise available for unrest
*encourage community cohesiveness
*reduce the harm of monoculture cropping to the ecosystem
*raise the well-being of each individual via reconnection to the earth
*encourage innovation by more experimenters

Which makes one wonder whether PTB really want any of the above?

Meanwhile, elsewhere in Africa, the deserts are greening because of all the rain!

That list reads more like aspects of Michael Tellinger's Ubuntu idea, and it seems would be the exact opposite of anything TPTB would favor.

David Dubyne (Adapt 2030) says to keep an eye on which foods are being recalled in contamination scares.  He suspects that more and more of these warnings will be published in MSM. 

Possible underlying reason:

Whichever category of food is allegedly contaminated at the moment may have really been most severely impacted by climate change, which PTB are trying to disguise.

3. Maple syrup
4. Walnuts
5. Restaurant food (leaving without paying)
6. Chocolate
7. Caviar
8. Honey
9. Meat, especially beef
10. Tomatoes

David Dubyne of Adapt 2030 made a startling announcement of the stats on Australia's wheat crop decline:

Normal annual wheat harvest: 12,000,000 tons

Current projected wheat harvest: 3,000,000 tons, not accounting for massive frost destruction last week in what is their equivalent of the month of June in the Northern Hemisphere.

Australia is perhaps the third or fourth country, this year, in which they have announced huge losses in their wheat crops.  IIRC, Canada was one, and another was either Russia or one of the Eastern European countries near Russia.  It doesn't take much in these crazy climate changes to ruin a wheat crop, as it is very sensitive in its later stages, which could be cut short just like that.  It seems more than one crop was ruined by a snowfall at the wrong time.

Logic Before Authority presents a film clip of the head of our government negotiating with China to provide them 5 million tons of soybeans per day, when the total tonnage grown in the U.S. is 320,000 per day, in a year with somewhat normal weather patterns. 

GMO concerns aside, how would that leave anything at all for U.S. citizens?

Is the U.S. beholden to China to such a degree that our crops are being put up as collateral?

Or maybe this was just a communication snafu?
