With South America's Decision NOT to plant wheat.. 02/10/2012 @ 8:56am All of these factors put together seem to point to a huge year for American Wheat Farmers. Of course, we still have our own weather issues ahead of us, but with that mitigated, could this be a "break through" year for Wheat Producers?

This is adding to an already volatile situation in 02/03/2012 @ 8:25am Last week Eugenia Tymoshenko testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the deteriorating Political Situation in Ukraine. The "Deal" for Fuel from Russia that got her mother, Pro-West Orange Revolution Leader Yulia Tymoshenko and others imprisoned, is crumbling without anything on the table to replace it. This once fast-growing Democratic former SSR was once on a fast track for becoming part of the EU. All this is off the table. People are in the streets. Freedom of the Press is being squelched. And at the end of yesterday, it was reported the Yanukovych Regime was seriously censoring the Internet and Social Networks, even seizing servers and operations of ISP's. Add the problems because of depleted soil, soil polluted by Soviet Industrialization and Chernobyl's meltdown, this Arctic blast could create a humanitarian emergency for these brave, but already beleaguered people. Secretary of State Clinton is making efforts on behalf of Madame Tymoshenko, as is the EU and other western powers, but Ukraine is a nation of Farmers, and is my hope the Farmers of this nation will find ways to reach out with support for Ukraine during this troubled time.
