    We need for V7 to come and take a poop on Russia.

    It should be clear by now that Russia's wheat exports are part of a trend and not one off weather related events.

    Craziest part is that they are just warming up.

    I've been following agriculture stuff on sdelanounas and if they keep this pace things will get insane in a decade, give or take.

    Ironic that you brought up the 'weather-related events' because their was a cold-snap in the fall that actually limited produce cultivation, which means had it not happened total tonnage would of been much greater.

    Now Russia just needs to push their own Coca-Cola or Nestle corporation and turn the raw foods/grains into end products and sell those worldwide. Will bring in a ton more money.

    China has completely stopped buying Canadian canola products, this is a perfect opportunity for Russia to ramp up their canola production and seize this new potential market share.

    Canola is heat treated rape seed oil. China and everyone else would be better off without this trans-fat shit. If you want a vegetable oil,
    then use sunflower oil. But if you want the best vegetable oil, then use coconut butter. It is a mono-saturate that humans have evolved with
    as a staple when they migrated out of Africa along the coast the Middle East and Europe and to South Asia and ultimately polynesia.

    Their expertise in ramping up the production of food is valuable... they should share such information with countries like Zimbabwe and Venezuela, which due to different circumstances (land redistribution and oil based economy suddenly hit by sanctions respectively) have to import food, but are not in a position to pay for a lot of it...

    But if you want the best vegetable oil, then use coconut butter.

    There you go... Russian agriculture expertise to set up coconut plantations and processing plants to make coconut butter for China and Russia...

    Made in Venezuela means western countries wont be afraid of buying it like they would if it said Made in Russia... most ignorant westerners would immediately think it meant Made in Chernobyl...

    There is major flooding, once in a couple of generations event, across parts of the US, particularly the grain and soy growing areas.

    This could have a very positive effect for Russia on the price of its exports this year.

    The new bridges being build (or already opened) between China and Russia will bring the transportation costs down.

    The issues of agriculture in difficult climates is one that Russia could export too... producing food in extreme cold using glass houses to contain heat and moisture, could be applied in deserts or places where the temperature is not conducive to rapid crop growth.

    In the 5-6 degree C temperatures in the South Island of New Zealand crops obviously wont grow that well in winter, but in summer in the mid 20s C they grow fine, but having green house structures... perhaps built vertically to maximise internal volume... foods could be grown all year round, and with full temperature control you can grow fruits and vegetables that would not normally grow naturally...

    In hot dry places like Australia you might trade clear glass with opaque solar panels that generate energy for cooling fans at peak temperatures, but also keep moisture levels high for good growth rates... double glazed windows to retain heat during cold nights but also to stop it getting too hot during the day with solar panels that deploy to block light getting in to the glasshouse during the day but also collect energy from the sun. Wind power would also be a useful balance as it would be portable and also potentially generate energy at night when solar panels are not generating power.

    The idea being self sufficiency so isolated places can be productive without needing to connect them to the local grid... obviously a workforce will create a new local community etc etc.

    Rail, road, and air travel connections all make things better and easier.
