    I wonder what will happen to fuel prices, most of that unplanted corn is said to have been headed to be turned to ethanol for states that mandate it in the fuel.

    A couple of years ago most of the US was in drought.

    This is weather.

    This one is from when California was doing water rationing and they were saying the the drought was permanent due to climate change.

    having grown foods that need pollinated and doing it by hand,
    things like squash will likely double in price if the bees go away
    most things will be at about that range of price change.
    or at least they will do that in the USA
    we know how much work this is to do.
    and in places in china the bees are gone from pollution already,
    and that is what they have been doing for years already.
    things like corn and wheat are totally unaffected as they are wind pollinated.
    things like tomatoes, peppers, and beans are self pollinating, so no change there either

    they were worried about a soybean glut with the trade war with china,
    guess that worry is likely over now.

    I've never been to fond of soybean, granted it can be used in a variety of ways, I mainly like to eat soybeans when they're made to mimick ground beef and sausage lol...I don't like soy milk very much either I prefer almond milk...

    I have noticed food prices continue to climb, every week a number of items are increased in price...
