Russian Organic Wheat Takes World by Storm, US GMO Glyphosate Losing Out!

According to analysts, exports of wheat may drop 9.3 percent to 21.1 million metric tons in the season ending May 31, the lowest since 1972.

“We’re no longer going to lead in volume every year,” said Alan Tracy, president of US Wheat Associates told Bloomberg, adding that an increase in global wheat trade was the only hope for the country.

Nearly forty percent of the US crop goes for export, according to the Department of Agriculture. The acreage for winter wheat fell to its second-lowest since 1913.

As US wheat is no longer the leader in global markets, American farmers are changing to corn and soybeans.

Russia is now the world’s leading wheat exporter and is monopolizing Middle East markets, which were once the preserve of America.

Russia will harvest 62.5 million metric tons of wheat in 2016, the most in eight years, according the Moscow-based Institute for Agriculture Market Studies (IKAR). Exports from the Black Sea area rose to $185 a ton last week, the highest since December. Prices increased 3.9 percent from a five-year low set in February and March, reports IKAR.

“Crop conditions currently are good, especially in the southern district,” said Olivier Bouillet from Paris-based consulting company Agritel.

The richer harvest from Russia might compensate for the drop in Ukraine, where output may fall about nine percent to 7.2 million tons

On the contrary, this a reeeeeealy smart economic mover Russia made user.

You may be retarded for not realizing how big a move this was. Now they are growing huge supplies of organic grain… the GMO'd grain that has banned in China, some parts of India and much of Europe as well. Can you not comprehend this was a smart economic move to take advantage of?

thinking anyone wants to buy non-gmo
theres a reason gmo is more popular

The intelligence in making non-GMO products doesn't have to deal with what benefits or risks in consuming GMOs there is. The intelligence is there's a market for it, and it seems like there will be a continued market for it, and they're supplying that market.

Glyphosate aka "round up"

Can't help that people are paranoid about science.

GMOs were proven in more than 20 countries, under scientific studies, to cause cancer and other health problems. And that is why other nations are banning GMO too, not just Russia.

Russian Organic Wheat

You think that because they ban GMOs, their wheat is organic?

They still use pesticides and herbicides. It's not organic.

To bad. The fact is the world no longer wants GMO, as time goes on more and more countries will just ban it. If we stick with only GMO, then our agriculture industry will suffer. By the way, this is one major reason why they want to force the TTIP with Europe, to force them to buy our GMO wheat.

There is an alternative, and its growing organic. But noooooo, can't have that because we have science to shove down people's throats.

You still don't understand that "organic" is not the opposite of "GMO". Most non-GMO food is also not organic.

Do you ever find out what words mean before using them, or is it all just a salad of letters and sounds to you?

@BunnyJinx
Well then, even better. We can grow non-GMO and organic. Either way, many countries are not taking it anymore more and even US farmers admit this is impacting our industry. We can be dicks about it, and be stubborn, or we can be rational and grow non-GMO foods like Russia is doing to compete with them.

Consider the following

Most non-GMO foods might not be organic, but they also won't give you tumors or cause Monsanto to sue you if their plants cross pollinate with yours.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/agricultural-giant-battles-small-farmers/

And FYI I wouldn't get your panties in a twist over pesticides considering Monsanto specifically engineers their own plants to resist the overly toxic Round-Up pesticides that they sell. Accomplishing the goals of literally killing off their competition and introducing dangerous toxins into the environment.

Organic agriculture is labor-intensive and expensive. Most people will not (or cannot) pay for organic food to be a significant part of their diet.

@Illusionz

Your entire response is irrelevant to my post. Many community colleges have remedial reading courses. I suggest you enroll in one.

In a world where the population is in the billions and rising obviously GM food is the only answer to keeping people fed.

But I dont like how the Americans are trying to force people to accept theirs.

If they have some superstition about it, then educate people dont just force it on them with the TPP and the TAP.

Good luck with that…

If Africa could farm anywhere near as efficiently as the rest of the world, it would be an exporter of food rather than having famines all the time.
But your talking about tribesniggers who never achieved anything throughout the entire history of civilization. It would be like teaching a dog how to do trigonometry. Its just going to sit there not taking anything in.

coming from an actual plant geneticist, saying gmo's cause cancer is retarded, plain and simple.
all 'instances' if this was shot down when it was found out the researchers completely ignored the use of carcinogenic pesticides within the study.
now listen closely, you shits: GMO's on their own can't accidentally cause cancer. ever. you are changing the DNA sequences, which in turn makes proteins. all of which are degraded into seperate nucleotides and amiono acids. in short, it doesn't matter what's on the DNA. unless you actively put in a specific hazardous gene in, it can't cause anything. before spouting you have 'articles' supporting your retarded claim, try finding that same article on a reputable article databases like pubmed or web of science. it's likely not on it, and with it's reasons ( being garbage-tier 'research')

also, just because monsanto is a giant piece of garbage doesn't meant the use of genetically enhanced organisms is wrong, you degenerates.

Wheat isn't genetically modified. No wheat is genetically modified. Russia saying it's wheat is "organic" is nothing but a sales ploy.

As for corn and soybeans, corn especially has been in the shitter ever since the start of this year. I know a lot of farmers that are really hurting because of it, and now that you add wheat to the list of shit crops, you can expect more American farmers to have to close shop and find other employment.

So much for "Making America Great Again".
