Wednesday Roundup

A little light on the updates today.  Hopefully some folks have some good information to add.

The Economist - A fertile field for BHP - On potash mining and the fertilizer business in Canada. 

The Economist - Straw man - Another take on the spike in wheat prices.

Farm Bureau - The other fertilizer - A rather funny blog post about organic farmers using "organic" fertilizer. 

Brownfield Ag News - Yield uncertainties support corn and soybeans - That title pretty much says it all; market updates.

Happy Wednesday!

  1. I've been watching various reports regarding the Pakistan flood...on abcnews last night, they mentioned that not only this year's crops were destroyed, but the stored crops from last year were and possibly even next year's if farmer's can't plant in time.

    Abc also mentioned that 8 million people are still without aide and currently the Taliban are supporting them. Reminds me of previous post regarding Taliban.
