Food Shortage or Increased Prices This Fall
I'm not sure about other people and their gardens. Mine is just now getting completely planted. Its just been too wet to get anything into the ground, though the plants I got in back in March are really doing well. A minor inconvenience for me, but a big problem for Midwest farmers.
The repeated storms and wet weather has kept the ground too soaked to plant. By this time American farmers should have a majority of the Summer crops planted but they don't.
And its not just the United States, all across the World similar weather conditions are disrupting agriculture as usual.
Could we be facing a Fall and Winter of higher food prices and shortages?
