There’s no doubt that tree huggers will hate hearing that crop shortages this year won’t be from Global Warming.
Problems from unusually cold winters, such as:
- Ultra-frozen grounds impairing crop production…
- Excessive flooding and bizarre incidents of snow and hailstorms in the summer…
- Tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes…
- Scorching heat waves around the globe…
All of the above may be minor compared to what’s going on in China.
And this is just the tip of the Iceberg (pun intended).
The Fall Army Worm (FAW; Spodoptera frugiperda) is a crop-eating pest that was first detected in China back in January 2019.
It has now spread across China’s southern border and currently impacts about 8,500 hectares (914,897,500 square feet) of grain production in Yunnan, Guangxi, Guangdong, Guizhou, Hunan, and Hainan provinces.
Officially, Chinese authorities have employed an emergency action plan to monitor and respond to the pest.
The FAW has no natural predators in China and its presence may result in lower production and crop quality of corn, rice, wheat, sorghum, sugarcane, cotton, soybean, and peanuts among other cash crops.
Experts warn that there is a high probability that the pest will spread across all of China’s grain production area within the next 12 months.
Translation: Food Shortages and higher prices at the grocery store.
- Start making a list of stocks to consider buying in the agriculture sector.
- While you’re at it, check out the food sector.
- And don’t overlook companies who support these sectors (fertilizers, farming equipment, and distribution centers).
Most investors won’t jump into these sectors until after they’ve seen several quarters of performance.
And you won’t hear the media report on events like the FAW because it goes against their “Global Warming” agenda.
