WARNING: FAMINE IS ON THE WAY- USDA Declares Half Of Midwest As Agricultural Disaster Area
The graphic below shows counties designated as agricultural disaster areas by the USDA. It speaks for itself.

[link to 2.bp.blogspot.com]

My reaction: The USDA has declared half of the Midwest to be an agricultural disaster area, which is a little strange considering.

So the USDA is predicting the biggest soybean crop ever, while at the same time declaring that half the Midwest to have suffered “significant production losses” due to natural disasters. Seem slightly contradictory?

Told you guys this back in the spring because of all the late cold temps with all the rain!

Said again when farmers couldnt get the feilds that was planted pulled in because of more flooding rains,also they had trouble with fall crops getting them planted AGAIN because of all the rain.

You guys ever go on an AG site and read the crop reports?

I told ya so!

Don't think that is correct. We had a remarkable summer here in Illinois....not too hot, cold or wet. Perfect crops weather. Everything has been lush and green. No major storms or floodings in the midwest this year. Even the drought in Georgia seems to be over.

So the crops from this year are probably huge. Same for Florida with no major hurricanes passing through it.

Texas and California are certainly having water problems which has probably affected the crops as well as the fires in California.

Hoping for a mild winter.

It's actually not as contradictory as it seems. It can be a large crop but easily ruined by cold and wet. It increases the moisture in the beans and corn. Beans will either open up, shatter, or rot. It takes longer and costs more to dry them, and people don't like buying livestock feed that might have mold, which is a very real possibility. Good article, thanks for posting it.

Everyone needs to start their own vegetable garden. Its easy, and you don't need as much land as you think. And then you can control how much or how little pesticides are in your food supply.

Do you really need those flowers and shrubs? They look nice, but you can't eat them.

Remember, there is only a three day supply of food in your local grocery store. If the SHTF, how much of your cash do you want to spend on food you could have grown and stored yourself? You may have other unanticipated needs.

Re: WARNING: FAMINE IS ON THE WAY- USDA Declares Half Of Midwest As Agricultural Disaster Area
Here's a few comments from farmers:

Just after midnight Oct. 29, 2009. It is pouring down rain again. Still have beans to cut, still have wheat to plant. I am 50 years old and I have never planted wheat this late. 2010 wheat will be very pour when planted this late.

10 to 12 inches of rain since Oct. 8th. Two more inches expected tomorrow night. Most of corn and beans planted last week of June and first week of July. A lot of corn not black layered yet. Beans frosted and were defoliated. Don't know what the outcome will be. Only a small amount of corn not replanted is harvested. Most beans planted only once, but very little harvested. I know of first crop beans planted on July 19th. They were completely green when the frost hit. Good luck to everyone.

Big problem -- I just checked my four different varieties of Pioneer corn. 70% has mold. Not advanced yet, but we have to start harvesting to get it down below 15%. Dealer denies there is a problem. I'm just waiting for these seed companies to continue there exorbitant prices. We have to lobby our representatives to allow us to us our home grown seeds for seed. Brazil and Argentina does not permit seed/chemical companies to restrict farmers.

Raining here again, close to 10 inches now in October, Still some beans out in the fields here, I just got done, Yields decent in the 50's which is normal. Some have gave up on beans and started corn, most of it from what I've heard is anywhere from 20% to 40% moisture and yields from 120 to 220, with very low test weights. Stalk Rot now a real concern & some guys are finding green snap they didn't know they had, those yields cut in half. I believe this harvest, when it's over, if ever will be one, we all will want to forget!

We are having RAIN for the umpteenth time this month!! We still have 125 acres of beans to cut. And they are really good beans. Yielding really well. We have shelled a very small amount of corn and it was wetter than we have dried for several years. 25-30 moisture. We hope we have a lot of nice days in November. Stay safe and keep smiling.

UN-FREAKIN-BELIEVABLE.

It is so unfortunate that some do not use thier common sense, having said that, earth is very big.

If harvest is 50% of what was expected, it is not a big deal, you can always be compenseted from the the Solos(Gigantic Commodity Stores:Under the groung, on the ground, above the ground, in buildings, in mountains, in forests, etc)
