****WHEAT DOOM/CHINA: Shandong Province Faces Worst Drought In A Century!!!****
24th January, 2011

Most of China's wheat-growing areas in the north are suffering from drought with some seeing no rain for more than three months while the second most important wheat province of Shandong is facing its worst drought in a century.

Experts say that if the drought goes on over coming weeks, with no effective measures to combat it, the winter wheat crop, which accounts for more than 90 percent of the country's wheat harvest, could be hurt significantly.

Guo Tiancai, deputy chief of the agriculture ministry's wheat experts group, said the dry weather had not hurt the winter crop for now, as earlier irrigation was providing enough moisture.

"But as the temperature warms up in spring and wheat grows faster, any measures which are not in place during the period could cause big losses to the final yield ... immeasurable losses."

i'm glad there's a wheat shortage, it's a terrible grain to be using. That's why there's so many people developing allergies to it. It's used in way to many products when there's tons of much healthier alternatives that don't make you lethargic and lazy! The Roman's knew very well that if you just feed the people bread it will keep them docile. It releases opiates into your body. Look it up.

You won't be getting a healthier alternative. You'll be getting whatever Monsanto decides to use as a filler for that wheat.
