Black Sea blockade in Russia-Ukraine war threatens world food supply
https://archive.ph/KDcwQ

 

'Ukraine grows enough food to feed 400 million people annually, and 30 per cent of the world’s supply of wheat comes from it and Russia. Ninety per cent of that produce is shipped through the Black Sea, with varying railway gauges making it difficult for Ukraine to export over land.

 

The crisis is being felt most acutely in the Middle East and north Africa, which suffer doubly from their reliance on wheat as a food staple, and in particular on wheat imported from Ukraine and Russia.'

You'll need to check this yourself and plan accordingly but particularly in Canada, they have only planted 8% of wheat which is to be harvested this autumn. Normally they would have planted 60% by this time. This is due to severe weather condition and it means you will have much less of wheat so be warned that flour might disappear from the shops.

Food will become extremely expensive, warn German farmers as cost of living crisis soars

https://rmx.news/article/food-will-become-extremely-expensive-warn-german-farmers-as-cost-of-living-crisis-soars/

 

'As the cost of living crisis deepens across Europe, consumers in Germany have been warned by the Hessian Farmers’ Association that food will soon become extremely expensive in the country.

 

At the farmers’ day in Alsfeld, the association’s president, Karsten Schmal, explained that the cost increases in the marketing chain would have to be passed on to consumers. The reasoning for expected price hikes are predominantly the meteoric rise in energy prices, fuel, fertilizers, and logistics.

 

According to the latest figures from the statistics authority Eurostat, food prices in Germany rose by 8.5 percent in April compared to the same month last year, but experts have warned that this will only be the beginning of crippling inflation.

 

Many rural livestock keepers are giving up

 

Schmal also expressed concern about the consequences of any gas embargo against Russia. Were this to happen, Schmal would demand that adequate production capacity for nitrogen fertilizers be created as farmers cannot maintain agricultural production without them. He called for a “national fertilizer reserve” to be established. Without this, significantly lower harvests would have to be expected in the case of an interruption in gas supplies from next year.

 

Pig and cattle farmers have also suffered because of rising energy costs with many companies needing to close, a reality that the Hessian farm president warned would be fatal to ensuring a regional meat supply as he called on authorities to take the necessary measures to preserve the industry.'

I think it is time to rename this thread to Engineered food crisis. 

 

Jewish totalitarian leaders killed tens of millions of people, mainly Christians through orchestrated famine and war in the last century.

 

Be warned, they can do it again.

Just an update from my commodity trading teacher, who is an expert in commodities. apparently 95% of the crops in Ukraine were successfully planted.

So I'm not sure how much of these food shortages are due to an actual lack of food, or some force not wanting us to get the food and making up stories about the why. I don't have a source as this was a conversation.
