Still snowing up here, flooding is now a given across much/most of western Canada. Does not bode well for HRSW and Canola production. |
India's cool weather is getting a bit carried away now. People dying of exposure. Those crops are going to need some heat soon. Cold and wet has a tendency to cause problems with root fungus and other assorted nastiness. China's weather is all over the place in the growing areas, not ideal conditions.
A lot of eyes are going to be on northern hemisphere crops this year. Anything less than record production in the American midwest, europe and russia in the summer of 11 and our stocks will get scary close to negative. As I have said before the black swan in all of this could turn out to be a farm raised animal.
