As Russia’s invasion chokes off Ukrainian wheat exports from one of the major bread-baskets of the world pushing up bread and noodle prices, at the same time, extreme weather world-wide is threatening the global harvest.
Extreme weather with the likes of heatwaves, droughts, or flooding are threatening wheat output from the U.S. to France and then India.
Just about every major producing region is facing one threat or another compounding the shrinking production from Ukraine.
According to Bloomberg, analysts are expecting the world output to drop for the first time in several seasons. Which is likely to keep the price of many food staples high as hunger and cost-of-living crises deepen around the world.
In the European Union, warm, dry weather is a growing concern in the world’s top wheat exporter with crops in half the wheat belt lacking rain and temperatures in top grower France have soared to high levels unseasonably early.
In the U.S., heat and dryness are plaguing the U.S. Central Plains where some growers are writing off parched hard red ground with withered wheat.
And in top producer Kansas, crop insurance agents are expecting some fields to yield zero to five bushels an acre, versus the normal 35 to 40 bushels.
But further north, excessive rains with flooding are making it tough to plant the wheat. Where the sowing in North Dakota has been painfully slow, with only 8% seeded versus nearly two-thirds at this time last year, according to the state’s wheat commission.
And in Canada there are similar dueling weather problems with wheat producers struggling with fields that are either too wet or too dry. Where 99% of the farmers are having problems with their fields.
Also in India, the blistering heat has scorched the wheat fields in the world’s second-biggest grower.
And in the Black Sea region, Russia’s war on Ukraine is knocking down production. While Russia is also bombing grain terminals and blockading Ukraine wheat exports in the Black Sea.
Which EU and UN officials say can bring increased food prices and food scarcity to areas of the world.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21, Revelation 6, Revelation 16) foretell that in the Last Days there will be extreme weather and war that will bring famines signaling the world is nearing the end of this age and the coming of Jesus Christ.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
