Farmers Scramble to Finish Harvest from Hell

better check your food storage!

Farmers Scramble to Finish Harvest from Hell

Wet weather has caused widespread crops problems including mold and diseases. All across the Midwest, crops are higher in moisture, creating harvest glitches, which means grain can't be stored or processed properly. Count on higher food prices in the coming months.

HOLLY NOTE: In recent months, numerous stories detailed crop and livestock damage. Drought, floods, hail and freezes bit into food supplies. Regardless of the reason, it resulted in destroyed or damaged crops.

Earlier this year drought was the big worry. Now 'the big dry' has turned into deluges, which have hit with devastating consequences. Throughout the grain belt crops are in danger. It's not just in Iowa. This same story is repeated south from Wisconsin to Mississippi and east from Kansas to Tennessee.

its the chemtrails. farmers

its the chemtrails. farmers should have some guts, test their soil, and air, and then freak out at their politicians, and sue the government. for fuck sake get some balls.

I have been saying for over

I have been saying for over a year now, chemtrails would probably be used to really screw up food production amongst other things. It doesn't seem coincidental that this last year has been one of the heaviest spray years (according to eyewitnesses who've been following chems) Many of the times I take UV measurements the UV will drop by 4,5,or 6 points on artificial sky days as oppossed to old-fashioned blue sky.. this has a huge effect on our natural evaporation cycle, and would cause plants to stay wet for longer periods than if they were being hit by direct sunlight that would dry them out.

i am wondering

i am wondering if stories like these will will be utilized to explain why food prices are going up, to obfuscate the real reason: inflation.

I think you are

on to something. Wow, your good.

thanks for the prop

you know, wsj had an article about the fed acknowledging the US Dollar had a 7% drop in value against the yen, in 3Q.*

That's only in 3 months time.

If this continues, we would hope to get a 28% raise this year just to be par with purchasing power to make a living next year.

That's pretty scary.

Mind you, it's not safe to compare USD value vs other currencies if they are all sinking relative to each other. (For example, we know the Euro is inflating too.) So it could be a lot worse, which would explain Gold going "up."

I put "up" in quotes, because as you probably know, if gold's value is staying relatively te same, then the price "raise" is just an illusion. After all, it would be taking more devalued dollars to make the same purchase from just a few months ago.

The high in Aug '09 was $965 an ounce. Today it is about $1125 an ounce. That's a 16.5% increase. Which would indicate that the USD actually dropped close to 16.5% last quarter.

undoubtedly, the truth is somewhere in between.

* the article about the 7% drop vs yen was posted here a few days ago:
