Ignore Climate Hysteria: World Grain Crop Set To Break Record

August 2, 2019

By Paul Homewood



The International Grains Council July report lowered total grain production to 2.148 billion tonnes this season, with wheat production downgraded across the European Union, Russia and Canada.

The IGC report put total global wheat production at 763 million tonnes for the 2019-20 season, down on last month’s forecast of 769 million tonnes, but still higher than the 2018-19 production figure of 733 million tonnes.

“ … the global wheat out turn is seen at a record, while maize is placed at the second largest ever and barley at the highest in a decade,” the report said.

The Rabobank July agricommodity market research report, released last week, reported global wheat production to have been reduced by 9 million tonnes between last month and this month.

“With major exporter production reduced by 10 million tonnes amid a modest increase in production in the US, hot and dry weather across Europe, the Black Sea region, and Australia having pushed yields down,” the report said.

    Many Montana Farmers are giving up on grain as there is a three year glut on it. They are going into growing hay for horses and some are shifting to growing HEMP! Some are selling family farms to developers for suburbs.

    I’m pretty sure that the reason for the projected harvest being lower in Canada and Russia is actually the COLDER weather this year. In Canada a very late, cold spring prevented a lot of sowing. And in European Russia there has been very cool, wet and cloudy summer.

      Chris, you could be right. The other thing that (true) global warming including shorter winters together with the ever increasing CO2 around the world, enables farmers to do is to produce two grain crops in a year. The alarmists always point at the downsides but warmth tends to produce benefits rather than harms.

        So as we are heading into a period of cooling the chances of getting 2 crops a year will be reduced. In addition, the wild swings of the jet stream causes rapid temperature changes which will affect crop growth.
