Re: Farm Debt Increasing

Hope your right — the US needs a lot of empty shelves for a serious attitude adjustment. The rich will get their food delivered by drone — that’s all amazon intended to serve anyway once the stock market crop was harvested.
Cheapo may be right. There might be a little panic if a large share of production goes organic health food only. Usda knows how that supply chain will work.
But 289’s right — last springs late cold shoved harvest into winter and we are set up for bigger delays again.

Notice how usda and talkers avoid the subject of unharvested acres. What were the losses. How many acres were shoved from corn to beans in 2018
Field losses were sizable in some locations.
