U.S. wheat crops have problems
Spring wheat was able to see some of the lowest wheat yields in decades due to widespread drought and heat.

98% of the country’s wheat crops Areas with drought..

In Northern Planes, Department of Agriculture Said On Monday, farmers were predicted to harvest the smallest crop of spring wheat (planted in spring and harvested in autumn) in 33 years.

I saw the Pacific Northwest Ground temperature rises to 145 degrees Fahrenheit (63 degrees Celsius) Heat waves worsen due to climate change Earlier this month, there were worst measurements in the areas of Washington and Oregon where wheat is grown.

This summer’s wheat problem shows that crop yields can begin to occur more regularly, despite technological advances in agriculture. Co-authored by Ortiz-Bobea Research Climate change has reduced global agricultural productivity by 21%, as announced earlier this year in Nature Climate Change. This is the same as not improving productivity for seven years.

[…]

“This will be more frequent,” he said. “Climate change is already reducing productivity on a global scale. It’s happening already, but we haven’t seen it because this year is worse than the previous year. Think about what happened. I haven’t, so I’m comparing today and yesterday.

US wheat production has actually declined since 1981 … mainly due to the fact that global wheat production has skyrocketed and US export demand has declined.

Wheat data for plots including 2021 are mid-year figures.

U.S. wheat production peaked in 1981 (peak wheat)

Figure 1. US Wheat: Harvested Area, Yield, Production (USDA).

US wheat exports peaked in 1981 (peak exports)

Figure 2. US Wheat: Production, Export, and Year-End Inventory (USDA).

World wheat production has almost doubled since 1981

Figure 3. World and US Wheat Production (USDA).

Wheat looks like a warm Wetaher

Figure 4. World wheat production likes global warming (USDA and Wood ForTrees). Yes … I misspelled the chart title “Weather” … I’ll fix it when I get back to the office tomorrow morning.

Wheat seems to like vegetable foods

Figure 5. Wheat + vegetable food = more wheat (USDA and wood for trees)

Unless it’s due to climate change …

Figure 6. “Climate change is 21% lower in global agricultural productivity than before …” Really? (Data of our world).

Data likes to laugh at Gizmodo and Arthur’s articles

Are you writing about Watts Up With That climate change, reliable energy, Gizmodo articles, and geology? It is now part of the climate destruction industry. I am quite short and have 10 very short dogs... Corgi thinks they are legless German shepherds..
