Late-maturing crops and persistent rain throughout October halted fieldwork, making this the slowest start for the U.S. harvest since the 1970s. The delays -- and questions about crop quality -- have kept Chicago Board of Trade grain markets on the boil.



CBOT corn futures are up about 15 percent since October 1. CBOT soybeans, already supported by strong export demand from China, are up about 7 percent.




By November 1, U.S. farmers had brought in only half the soybean crop and one-quarter of the corn, well below the five-year averages of 87 percent and 71 percent, respectively.

Watch out, folks. Food prices could rise. This is the harvest from hell. If corn fails, there will be a huge demand for other crops like wheat. Which will send prices up. This will affect millons of people already reeling from the financial crisis.

Looks like it's "man corn" for dinner again.

Either that or Monsanto rice.

Choices are getting slim.

This is why I'm building a greenhouse next spring.

Sucks for those who are struggling for money, at the same time I say it's good because less GMO crop poisoning our health, the better.

They could try something like eating the corn instead of turning it into a heavily subsidized money losing fuel source. Or they could stop feeding it to cattle and let them eat grass like nature intended.
