UN alert: One-fourth of world's wheat at risk from new fungus


www.worldtribune.com

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) warned in March that Iran had detected a new highly pathogenic strain of wheat stem rust called Ug99.
The fungal disease could spread to other wheat producing states in the Near East and western Asia that provide one-quarter of the world’s wheat.

I do find it odd that this is coming out of Iran (we wouldn't possibly spray their crops in an attempt to hurt their country would we? Nah, that's just crazy talk). That aside, this is just more gloomy news regarding the world food crisis.

So now Rice, Corn and Wheat will all be priced so high that the poor will not be able to afford them. This year just keeps getting better and better

Could be triggered by a tainted enviroment.

I mean in the area during the 80's Iran-Iraq war vast amounts of gas was used. The organic chemicals used for fabrication of such are (I think) fungus related. Please correcvt me should I be wrong on that.

BTW, who knows what they are using today in neibouring Iraq?

Could be. Did they have anything similar to this during the Iran Iraq war? The more I think about it, the more I am leaning toward the US spraying. It is similar to what we do / have done in South America.
