WORLD FACING FOURTH CONSECUTIVE GRAIN HARVEST SHORTFALL
Wheat and Rice Prices Moving Up
9/17/3
by Lester Brown
http://www.earth-policy.org/Updates/Update28.htm


This year's world grain harvest is falling short of consumption by 93
million tons, dropping world grain stocks to the lowest level in 30 years.
As rising temperatures and falling water tables hamstring farmers' efforts
to expand production...


With rising temperature now shrinking harvests, we need to get serious
about stabilizing climate, going far beyond the global goal set in the
Kyoto Protocol of a 5-percent cut in carbon emissions by 2012. Reducing
fossil fuel use is the key to stabilizing climate. It is perhaps a
commentary on the complexity of our time that decisions made in ministries
of energy may have a greater effect on food security than those made in
ministries of agriculture.


Future food security may depend not only on stabilizing population,
raising water productivity, and stabilizing climate, but on doing all
these things at wartime speed.

Rockdust is a commonly applied amendment used by
Organic Gardeners(regenerative)everywhere..there
are soil tests you can get to see if your land is
mineral deficient,,it is very rare,there is even
a traditional way to tell what your soil is like
by seeing what wild plants grow there as different
herbs grow in different kinds of soil...there is
no magic pill,just use good compost and mulch,
return everything to your soil including your own
droppings..

Food for thought on global warming may be found in this recent article by Chad Heeter: My Saudi Arabian Breakfast. http://www.commondreams.org/views06/0324-21.htm
Eating foods grown closer to home will become increasingly important, and necessary. Composting humanure is a step in that direction.
"The best manure for the land is the owner's footprint."
---Aristotle, Economics (paraphrased)
