unplanted


Conditions among wettest ever on the Canadian Prairies

3 Jun 10 - "About 30 percent of northeastern Saskatchewan, or more than 1 million acres designated for wheat, canola and barley, might go unplanted this year," says this article on Yahoo. "Conditions for late spring planting among the wettest ever on the Canadian Prairies."

"The entire Canadian Prairies, with the exception of the Rocky foothills and Peace region, has received above-normal precipitation this spring, with many areas getting more than twice as much rain as normal during the April-May planting period," with a large part of central Saskatchewan setting wetness records.

"Canada is the world's third largest grower of canola and rapeseed, and the No. 6 producer of wheat."

          As I say in "Not by Fire but by Ice," I think we'll be fighting in the
          streets for food long before we're covered by ice.
