Wheat as a new oil: there will be wars too

Wheat as a new oil: there will be wars too

On April 28, information appeared that Russia had decided to suspend grain exports. This was done for the first time since 2010. Then the drought caused the stoppage, causing fears that a crop failure would lead to a shortage of grain in the country. There will be no export until at least July 1.


Export limit is exhausted


This time, the reason for the temporary refusal of export was the exhaustion of the established quota by Russian exporters. The marginal rate of grain export abroad for the second quarter of this year, that is, until June 30, was set at the end of March in the amount of 7 million tons. At the same time, the allowed volume was literally enough for several weeks, or even days.

True, not all of the volume has been physically taken out yet. About 3,3 million tons were exported abroad, and the rest of the grain was declared for export in May and June.

The Ministry of Agriculture hopes that restrictions will help ensure increased domestic demand and limit the rise in grain prices on the Russian market. In addition, there are concerns that this year the grain harvest in Russia will not be high due to weather conditions. The point is that this spring in the Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories, regions that give the country a large amount of grain, there was almost no rain. And the summer, according to weather forecasts, promises to be abnormally hot.



Despite the restrictions introduced at the moment, in the future, Russia does not intend to abandon the role of one of the world's leading grain exporters.

Food export was limited not only by Russia. Similar measures were also taken by India, China, Vietnam, Kyrgyzstan and some other countries.

Price phenomenon


When a grain export quota was introduced in March, the price of wheat reached 13 rubles per ton, overtaking the falling in price Russian Urals oil, the price of which had fallen to 300 thousand rubles at that time. Now the cost of a ton of wheat has reached 12,9 rubles.

In retail, cereal prices also increased by an average of about 5 percent. And this is understandable, the demand for them is high, because due to quarantine people stock up on inexpensive products that can be stored for a long time.

Although wheat has risen in price, it has almost no effect on the price of flour. This is explained by the fact that a certain increase in demand for it at wholesale and retail is offset by a drop in demand in the field of fast food and other catering.


Exporters of these products also paid attention to the ratio of wheat and oil price dynamics. In particular, at the end of March in Moscow a joint online conference was held on the topic “Wheat is more expensive than oil: How record prices for grain and fuel will affect the economy”. And its organizers were the Russian Grain Union and the National Association of Oil and Gas Services. An unexpected "meeting", is not it ...

At the conference, it was noted that the coronavirus pandemic was the cause of this price phenomenon. At the same time, there was a drop in oil demand and an increase in grain stocks in the event of a food crisis.

Undoubtedly, due to lower prices, Russia suffered significant financial losses. But there is an opinion that grain exports can compensate for these losses. Of course, profits in these two sectors are not yet comparable. If last year Russia received $ 121 billion from oil sales, then it sold grain for 25 billion.

Wheat is not worse than oil


It is possible that in the near future, not only in Russia but also in the world, food exports will become a higher priority industry than hydrocarbon exports.

The pandemic has shown that for any country, having grain reserves is more important than even fuel reserves. Oil is already really nowhere to go, because the demand for it is much lower than supply. And after quarantine, the development of "green" energy and resource-saving technologies can cause a decrease in demand for "black gold".

In addition, it should be understood that oil, unlike grain, is an irreplaceable resource. She is not getting bigger, and sooner or later it will end.

As for food, the demand for them will never disappear under any circumstances. In addition, despite wars and epidemics, the world's population continues to grow. This means that the demand for food is also constantly increasing.

Food Market Repeats Shale Revolution


To some extent, the development of the food market is beginning to resemble the development of the oil market. Previously, oil was extracted only in the traditional way, and no one took oil shale seriously. Then, shale oil, despite the high cost of production, also occupied its niche. The increase in world prices and the development of technology made it possible to make such a method of oil production cost-effective and even profitable.

The same thing is happening now in agriculture. For example, Egypt, using drip irrigation, genetics and other technologies, began to achieve potato yields so high that it began to export it, including to Russia. Although Egypt is not Belarus, as previously thought, it is impossible to grow potatoes in export volumes in principle.

Or, for example, Zimbabwe, where in a semi-desert area it was possible to double the yield of millet to 3,29 tons per hectare. For comparison, in Russia this indicator under the most favorable conditions did not exceed 1,7 tons per hectare. The reason for this is the use of drought tolerant varieties and consideration of landscape features.

By the way, Europe is providing great assistance to some African countries in the development of agriculture. And not because of the kindness of the soul, but out of selfish considerations. After all, the more satisfying Africa lives, the less the flow of refugees from there to the EU.

It is easy to see that competition in the global food market is becoming tougher, more and more players are entering it. And very soon, perhaps, we will observe here no less large-scale trade wars than those that have recently occurred on the hydrocarbon market. And, unfortunately, not only shopping. Indeed, wheat in such a format as new oil ...

Therefore, Russia should actively introduce new technologies in agriculture, until this profitable market is finally divided between other countries. The main thing is that these technologies do not undermine the quality of products for domestic consumption.

    And now the Palladium of the Russian Federation is not in a hurry to export, which has a very bad effect on the world engineering industry, for palladium is mined only in Africa and here. But Russia is the main exporter of this metal.

      Demand for palladium is declining. The production of microelectronics and the auto industry have sunk due to a pandemic. And so that the story of cheap oil does not repeat itself, our sales are slowed down, we can afford it. Demand will go and sales will go.

        Now gold prices have jumped great. Russia increased its gold trade, thus replacing the drop in revenue from the sale of cheaper palladium. Thank God, gold mining in Russia exceeds its own consumption, even taking into account the fact that half of the mined is bought by the Central Bank.

      Yes, because production is slowing down all over the world, and not because Russia is trying to accumulate a strategic supply of palladium. But look at how many “our” banks have recently thrown off a foreign country, in particular, gold in Britain.

            Yeah, now everyone ran a revolution to arrange. laughing I repeat, this is a commercial turnover. Nobody touches the country's gold reserves. Give me at least one certified fact where banks sell our gold reserves. Not a commercial, but a stock of the country. By the way, it has recently been replenished.

            Inappropriate analogy. At sunset, the country's gold reserves were declining, falling to about 300 tons, and now it is growing. Since the beginning of 2020, the gold reserve has grown by about 27 tons and at the end of March amounted to more than 2298 tons.

          And the state’s gold reserve is created not only so that gold lies in the basements. The purchasing power of gold as a cash equivalent is growing. To trade gold wisely - to be in profit. Fortunately, we have our own gold mining, we mine 25-26 tons per month.

            It is not the purchasing power of gold that is growing; it is paper money that is depreciating. Gold, like money, has long been limited in use; everyone has been driven into the bank bondage of "cut paper."

But one of the first EBN decrees was precisely to close this project, although they were almost ready to launch it and the airfields in Angola were ready for them (it was more convenient and less costly there) ..And in general, these developments could bring the USSR in computer and navigation technologies to a new level of development .. But alas! Then, our space station was flooded near the Earth .. Although it could be used to build more abruptly than the ISS now ... That's it ..

      will not. price increases for goods such as bread are regulated
      State regulation of the price of bread is carried out in compliance with the following principles (conditions):

      The decision on state regulation of the price of bread is taken by the state executive authority of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation;
      the decision of executive authorities of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation shall enter into force on the day of its publication;
      state regulation of bread prices is introduced subject to a significant increase in prices compared with the corresponding periods of previous years;
      consider a significant increase in bread prices the economic situation in the region when the retail price increase for the specified product exceeds the monthly inflation rate planned for the development of the Federal Budget by 1-2 percent or a fixed price increase in the region by 3-4 percent compared to the corresponding period last year.
      bread price regulation is carried out: through the intervention of grain on the market in order to stabilize (lower) the price of flour;
      the establishment of a fixed size of the trade allowance for bread;
      the size of the trade allowance for bread is established by the executive authority, which is binding on all trade organizations and public catering enterprises.
      The trade premium for bread is set differentially according to the varieties and types of bread. On the varieties of bread produced from rye, lower classes of wheat and other lower-quality grains, it is set in smaller sizes than on breads of the highest grades.
      Trade allowances can be set for 6 months or for one year differentially when selling bread in cities and selling bread in rural areas.
      in general, bread is better not to eat. it's empty kk for no reason.

        in general, bread is better not to eat. it's empty kk for no reason.

        That you better tell the bull chicken. Bread is not what they sell in a store. There’s definitely no bread in the store. As you can understand, they sell a construct that was invented in Germany during the First World War. The situation in the country at that time was called "brilliantly organized hunger."

        But what about “bread to the head of everything”, “you won’t be full without bread”, “bread is the land, so paradise is under spruce! Good bread is certainly expensive but also tasty and healthy! And how to feed cattle if we sell all the grain over the hill? And what will be the price of meat, milk, eggs, poultry if the country has expensive grain?

          If there is expensive grain, then seasonings are overseas, i.e. we will feed with cheap substitutes. Although this is now being done in full. Vitamins and protein ...

            “At the moment, foreign corporations already fully control a number of the most important sub-sectors of the food industry in Russia, which is a direct threat to the country's food security, and also negatively affects the national economy. The greatest damage from the monopoly of multinational companies in the food market is done by domestic agricultural producers as suppliers of raw materials for the processing industry ... As soon as a strong domestic production or a brand that is popular with the consumer appears on the Russian market, they are immediately bought up by foreign corporations, ”reports in his report of the educational and methodological center of agricultural consultation and retraining of personnel of the agro-industrial complex of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation.

            And it will be necessary for external forces to arrange hunger in Russia - they will impose sanctions on seeds, additives for animal feed, and even just block production computers on the Internet. Who in the subject, he will understand.

    Therefore, Russia should actively introduce new technologies in agriculture, until this profitable market is finally divided between other countries. The main thing is that these technologies do not undermine the quality of products for domestic consumption.

Two years ago, by chance, in a deserted garden in the mountains (Crimea) I discovered a tea rose, a Gloria rose ... I picked up some fragrant, not big apples there .. Taste and the aroma struck! Now there are no such apples! Old varieties are not profitable! Trees grow for a long time before fruiting, tall, not profitable ..., roses of old varieties, grapes (ladies' finger, chaush, black Crimean !!!), they are sick, they require a lot of care.

            Zementbomber did not set cons. So, a comment from someone who worked in an organization with the name "Energobapan ...". All these "green" attempts are paid by consumers of traditional energy sources through the tax system. Take away the benefits and taxes, and then you will find out the prohibitive real value of these environmental ventures. It's like with the DNI and LC - Kuyev said that he feeds these unprofitable territories. And as they disconnected, the truth was revealed, it turned out exactly the opposite. Why do country authorities create such a muddy financial system? In 2012, Gref, at a meeting of senior officials in St. Petersburg, "Breaking the Management Deadlock," said that he was scared of the idea of ​​transferring power to the population. That any mass management implies elements of manipulation, and how can he live and manage in a society where everyone has equal access to information from a fake media. Watch this video, it may clarify.))
            The real authorities of most countries have long ranked themselves among the demigods, and in order to consolidate their status, they have arranged deevolution to the peoples - they turn them into a degenerate bylo.
            At the expense of specific "digital", then on the Internet there are enough treatises on enta topic. Do not be too lazy to broaden your horizons, once interested. At the same time take an interest in the real cost of gasoline without hidden taxes. And grain - taking into account the restoration of land after harvesting.

              Well, yes, financing of Donetsk region. and Lugansk region. - In 2012, the aggregate exceeded revenues from them by approximately $ 3.5 billion. And when "they disconnected" - it turned out that the coal of these "they" is nowhere other than in Greater Ukraine - from the word "completely." That without the "Nazi junta" paying pensions to the residents of these "they" - a "social disaster" will occur in the "they" with the consequences of the terrified declared total consequences of all the "barbaric criminal bombardments of cities" combined. That “Snezhmash” cannot cooperate without cooperation with the parent company “MS”, even if the UEC is filled up with gold from the budget of the UEC. Etc. etc. - the long list will turn out, if everything is listed.
              how can he live and manage in a society where everyone has equal access to information from a fake media.

              "societies with equal access to falsified information" - there was not, never is and never will be. Even if all the media are abolished, all state, official, and commercial secrets are canceled, every piece of paper, even the most empty one, must be uploaded on the Web and shot for any slightest falsification of this very information, such a society will not appear. All that denounce counterfeiters - though only one: so that they are not prevented from falsifying in their favor.
              take an interest in the real cost of gasoline without hidden taxes.

              For reference: the real net cost of gasoline (production + cracking + transportation + final infrastructure costs) in Kuwait City and the “Township Dalne-Medvezhyugolsk of the Arctic of Keneda” - it will easily differ by two orders of magnitude (i.e. 100 times) or more.

                According to your logic, I caught a crook by the hand - that means I am also a crook. This is your hutspa.
                The lion's share in the cost of gasoline is hidden taxes laid down by the state. And if you make a choice between energy from minerals and wind, given the net cost of both options, then green ventures fail.

                By the way, quotas for carbon dioxide emissions, fanatics of the green idea and bureaucratic state plans are also pushing Germany.

                Interestingly, you are a pure Pole, or "sausage migrant"? I do not consider the Poles enemies, I wish them peace and prosperity.

                  It’s just not true. Well, well, a dreamer.

                  You are able to distinguish budget subsidies from delivery rates?
                  By the way - about the "green" tariffs "in Germany (01.05.2018/XNUMX/XNUMX):
                  10,61-12,20 eurocents per kilowatt hour will be paid to the owners of solar power plants that are installed on the roof, depending on the capacity of the station.
                  8,44 euro cent - a fixed preferential rate for owners of other solar panels up to 100 kW.
                  As for wind farms, the preferential tariff for them is 8-10 eurocents per 1 kilowatt hour, depending on when the wind turbine was put into operation.

                  a single production chain has been destroyed - there was nothing to arrange a coup in Kuyev.

                  Well, and who is worse? So do we or the "republics"? Not so accurate for us.
                  And at the expense of pensions - so return that part of the pension fund that accounts for the DPR and LPR, this is the sacred property of these pensioners.

                  This question can be considered. As soon as the “DPR” and “LPR” are ready to contribute (by installments and with partial payment of goods) to the State Budget of Ukraine the amount spent on subsidizing pensions to residents of territories under their control, starting in January 1992 d. Adjusted for inflation, of course. laughing
                  In Crimea, a permissive go-ahead was given from the West

                  The problem is exclusively of those who decided to use this “go-ahead” - “now let gentlemen not be offended” (c)
                  DPR and LPR themselves wanted to leave the outskirts

                  Again - "let the gentlemen now not be offended."

                    "Do you have checkers or get there?" What difference does it make to me in what kind of wrapper they will give subsidies for the "green" energy. Paying for the banquet will ultimately be consumers of electricity. And without these subsidies, windmills are blown away.
                    Here are the data for Britain:

                    The number of implemented land (onshore) wind farms (projects)

                    Suddenly, it turned out that elven energy is a very expensive pleasure, and you can indulge in it only in limited quantities. Such rates of stealing money from the budget frightened politicians and in 2014-15, subsidies were sharply cut. Of course, the number of onshore stations built has plummeted down. As we see in 2019, only 23 stations were launched.

                    And now - a cherry on the cake: all but one of the stations managed to conclude a contract for subsidies before they were canceled. Just a long time to build.

                    In 2019, 1 (One) ground station was launched without subsidies. Elves standing frantically applaud unknown heroes-investors ... (or, perhaps, die of laughter, discussing losh_ar, latecomers to razdan-green subsidies).

                    People who feel like Papuans reason like this:
                    "Since smart white gentlemen spend so much money on greenery, it should be rational and correct. It’s just that out of poverty of our minds we are not always able to understand what the trick is. Just in case, copy it and try to come up with at least some explanation."

                    At the same time, they completely forget that in the West, in the era of victorious parasitism, rational reasons for the existence (and cutting) of huge budgets are not required.

                    At the expense of the Outskirts - I was brought up on traditional Orthodox values. I consider Crimea and Little Russia a part of common Russia. We look who supports the forces that organized the coup in Kuev:

                    1. Georgian mercenaries snipers on the Maidan
                    2. Baal bloodsuckers, these ripper billionaires who kill a dozen young people to extend their earthly existence
                    3. for the "maydanut" outskirts "cut" the world Sodom, the "blue lobby" of countries around the world ...
                    4. hub_bad
                    5. zombie Bandera with their cruelty beyond Christ
                    6. from perverts and degenerates from the Russian Federation, who believe that Russians are a myth, and who decided that they became masters of Moscow
                    etc...

                    I do not think that this army of chaos wishes prosperity to the inhabitants of the Outskirts. The coup in Kuev was not Donetsk and Crimeans were happy with the problems for all Orthodox now.

                    Deviated from the topic. Well, for wheat and in general the role of agriculture in the life of countries, there is an excellent popular science book "Guns, Microbes and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies" by the American scientist Jared Diamond. Recommend. After it, it will become clearer what wheat pricing leads to without considering the restoration of land bio-productivity.

                      Thanks, curious. But UK - as a major "oil and gas power" is still all the same - here, IMHO, is not very indicative. In Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands, the situation is different and significant.

    Europe is hooked on biofuels. That is, European farmers, instead of grain in recent years, began to grow rapeseed and so on. going to fuel crops. Specialists have long said that this could lead to food shortages.
    I did not have to wait long, the shortage has already arrived, and this will lead to the fact that on the trail. instead of rapeseed, the grain is sown for a year and the balance is restored.

      But nothing will grow after rapeseed in those fields. If only to swell a bunch of very expensive fertilizers.

      Still technical rapeseed kills beekeeping, but it’s true, strokes to the portrait. And there are no bees in the right amount - Khan to most other crops.

        >>> More technical rapeseed kills beekeeping, <<<
        Rapeseed usually helps beekeeping very much. It blooms early and gives a lot of bee pollen (pollen), so bee colonies are growing rapidly on rapeseed and are gaining strength by the time of flowering of honey plants.
        Ps: on rape, the bees are fed sugar, more than sugar, in addition to the bee bread, you also need sugar.
        .
        What do you mean by saying that a bee dies on rapeseed?

          In the Baltic countries, a massive pestilence of bees coincided with the sowing of large areas with rape.
          I suspect that due to pesticides without which those varieties stupidly do not grow.
          About three years ago, they wrote a lot about this, I don’t remember all the details, but the situation was critical.

      Sown area in the EU for rapeseed - decently less than even 10 million hectares. On the scale of agriculture, the EU is not much. Crops for wheat, etc. - at times a larger area.

    -By the way, a lot of help to some African countries in the development of agriculture is provided by Europe.
    According to studies of water from Libyan artesian sources would be enough for almost 5000 years.
    Before the war, the man-made river (without exaggeration, the eighth wonder of the world) irrigated about 160000 hectares, actively developed for agriculture. And to the south, on the territory of the Sahara, the irrigation channels brought to the surface served as a place for the watering of animals. Large cities of the country, in particular, the capital of Tripoli, were supplied with drinking water.
    One M3 of artesian water cost (with delivery). A third of the bucks. The Yankees offer a project. Where desalinated water will cost 4 bucks per cubic meter. IMF gives loans, of course).
    If not for the overthrow of Gaddafi with the FIRST Euronat bombing of the "man-made river", there could be no talk of any famine (at least in Africa).

      In the ranking of the largest buyers of Russian grain, rearrangements have occurred. At the end of the 2019/20 season, Turkey can lead the list. Such a forecast was announced to "Agroinvestor" by the head of the grain direction of the Institute for Agricultural Market Studies (IKAR) Oleg Sukhanov. In the first half of the current agricultural year, the country purchased 5,3 million tons of grain, while a year earlier for the same period - only 3,8 million tons. “The export rates to Turkey not only increased, but also became record-breaking,” Sukhanov draws attention . “The growth in procurement brought the country to first place in the top 3 largest importers of our grain.” ... According to experts, before the end of the season, Turkey may purchase another 0,8-1,2 million tons, depending on market conditions. That is, in general, according to the results of the season, deliveries may be at the level of 6,5 million tons.

    the same thing is happening now in agriculture. For example, Egypt, using drip irrigation, genetics and other technologies, began to achieve potato yields so high that it began to export it, including to Russia. Although Egypt is not Belarus, as previously thought, it is impossible to grow potatoes in export volumes in principle.

    Or, for example, Zimbabwe, where in a semi-desert area it was possible to double the yield of millet to 3,29 tons per hectare. For comparison, in Russia this indicator under the most favorable conditions did not exceed 1,7 tons per hectare. The reason for this is the use of drought tolerant varieties and consideration of landscape features.

    By the way, Europe is providing great assistance to some African countries in the development of agriculture. And not because of the kindness of the soul, but out of selfish considerations. After all, the more satisfying Africa lives, the less the flow of refugees from there to the EU.

    Undoubtedly, Russia suffered significant financial losses due to lower prices, but it is believed that grain exports can compensate for these losses. ... If last year Russia received $ 121 billion from oil sales, then it sold grain for 25 billion.

    On April 28, information appeared that Russia had decided to suspend grain exports. This was done for the first time since 2010. Then the drought caused the stoppage, causing fears that a crop failure would lead to a shortage of grain in the country. There will be no export until at least July 1.

    And now the Palladium of the Russian Federation is not in a hurry to export, which has a very bad effect on the world engineering industry, for palladium is mined only in Africa and here. But Russia is the main exporter of this metal.

                        What arguments? Which ones did you reprint? Truly, the argument between a blind man and a deaf man. Well, let’s say, when does one argument “fill up” the other?

                        So what's the question? - try this very "face" - "fill"! wink smile You can - try it virtually. Then - I - with the help of delivering AIs - will virtually put you to ridicule. You can - even try it really. Then - I will give you my home address and if you use this information - I will gladly refresh my skill in shooting at a real target (last time I had it in 2006, it was a mess) smile ).
                        And you, as a Pole, do you need all this?

                        It's simple - Just for lulz. Only. laughing

                        laughing Well - if I had HERE (in discussions on VO) there would be departures to integral + “I would, however, be somewhat worried.” If a Pole living in Ukraine — Russians (and it’s precisely the pointy ones) begin to praise — he with a probability of 99.99% ... - does something very wrong. negative
                        PS I'm certainly not 146% sure that "he was extreme, not the last." Man is mortal in the end. Moreover - and suddenly mortal too.

(or someone else "left") one does not have to take seriously And about the "face to fill" is an allegory and since it turned out to be incomprehensible (because of this there were even suspicions that the opponent was a woman), I had to translate “primitively on the ground” –– it would be better for you for “Greater Poland from sea to sea” ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– “Primitively on the ground” –– it would be better for you to “Greater Poland from sea to sea” –– Here we get along with such Poles (but this is the topic so far (perhaps) not until the end of the (not at all) written analytical article)

Notice on the question of “About Poland” we have “points of contact”)) But unfortunately, no active actions in this direction are visible (everything is at the level of “so-so-so)” And of course, within what borders? -the question is controversial (still not the 16th century in the yard) But there are no sensible (real and not fantastic) proposals on the division of spheres of influence as far as I can judge from open sources, and the Polish "mono-ethnic concentrate" has been "melting" in recent years (an extremely negative factor in one nation-state Without sarcasm, the problem is common for the Slavic peoples) Of course, you can "tidy up" but this is not yet visible (well, not to consider the purchase of land and enterprises that can be stupidly taken away by more toothy ones as serious)

    Exports of sunflower seeds from Russia increased tenfold in physical terms and 14 times in value over the first two months of 2020. This follows from the data of the FCS, which Izvestia has reviewed. The reasons for this are the weakening ruble and high demand from Turkey, the Ministry of Agriculture explained. They added that such a growth rate is a record since 2016. At the same time, supplies of all agricultural products increased by 16% - despite the coronavirus. It will not have an impact on exports in the future, moreover, in the future, Russia may be able to fill many niches that were vacant due to the pandemic, experts said.

    Gold export is growing due to a change in the Central Bank’s policy, which for a long time bought up almost all precious metal mining in Russia and accumulated 2,27 thousand tons in gold reserves, overtaking China closely approaching France.

    Since last spring, the Central Bank set a discount by purchasing gold 0,12% lower than the London market quotes, and reduced the volume of purchases in the second half of the year, explains Alexey Zaitsev, head of operations for commodity assets and funding products of Otkritie Bank.

    At the end of last year, the Central Bank purchased 158,6 tons - 40% less than in 2018 (273,1 tons).

    Since April 1, the Central Bank has completely stopped buying gold in the market, giving the go-ahead for 100 percent export to ensure the inflow of foreign currency into the economy, which was hit by a shock reduction in foreign exchange earnings from the sale of hydrocarbons. The moment for the sale of gold cannot be called a failure: the coronavirus pandemic and collapse markets sharply inflated the demand for precious metals, and the shutdown of refineries in Switzerland and mines in South Africa and Peru, multiplied by the collapse of transportation, created a shortage in individual markets.

    US bankers faced problems at the end of May, who were ready to bid $ 100 higher than fixing in London to get physical metal, said Goldmoney CEO Roy Sebag.

    On the NYMEX NYSE, gold futures were trading at a premium of $ 70 at London prices. On March 8, amid the collapse of markets, the price reached $ 1704,3 per troy ounce - the highest since December 2012.

    Since August 2018, gold has risen in price by 44%, to $ 1694 per ounce by 20.49 Moscow time on Monday. To whom is war, and to whom is mother dear? laughing

    It is clear that magnates from oil and bread can change. We are an oil power, and gas is expensive. And we have plenty of bread, but I'm sorry ... The cut-off little hump is stale after ten minutes. In the past, bread was baked for a week in the villages, and the taste can’t be compared with the current one. We often like to boast about our global plans, but as soon as we get down to the person we get the usual cracker. And there is only pride for our achievements.

    Apparently this is not such a disastrous agriculture as it is customary to think. The French edition of La Croix indicates that in terms of wheat production by 2020, Russia was among the five leading producers of the world, and in wheat export in first place, ahead of the United States and Canada and the EU. True, China is not included in this rating. The French also note that for the first time since 1914, Russia became a leading player in the global wheat market.

    Wheat is a nonrenewable resource like oil. In the case of wheat, the bioproductivity of fields previously accumulated by nature is consumed. In the Stavropol Territory, shortly before chemicalization, one and a half centuries ago, the volume of biomass in fertile soil reached 10 tons per hectare. Now the mass of microorganisms in the soil has decreased to 1-2 tons per hectare. 1 cm of the fertile layer is formed depending on climatic conditions of 100 years or more. In the tundra of 1 cm will be created for thousands of years. Therefore, Turkey, buying grain in Russia and selling flour from to Muslim countries, saves its resources. And Russia is turning at an accelerated pace into the deserts of Kin-Dza-Dza. The last sensible leader of Russia is Stalin. Under him, they launched a grandiose program to restore the bio-productivity of land. They planted huge forest belts, forests, created ponds. Khrushchev stopped all this. Further only worse. Well, hydroponics and GMO plants are a way to degeneration. So hello to you from Egyptian potatoes, Israeli carrots and Sino-Turkish tomatoes.)))
