U.S. Soybean yields increased 7.5% per acre from 2017 to 2018, to their highest levels in history.

September 12, 2018 – U.S. soybean farmers will harvest a record crop to feed ravenous domestic demand, according to government projections released today.

September 12, 2018 – With combines ready to invade fields, ISA Market Development Director Grant Kimberley said the soybean industry faces a big challenge marketing the crop given China’s 25-percent tariff on U.S. soybeans implemented on July 6. It has essentially halted sales to the country.

 

 

 

 

Sales drop either when supply increases, or demand decreases, or both.

Those two soybean quotes up top are both from the same article, which is trying to get you to believe that the most soybeans ever harvested in U.S. history were deliberately planted to feed ravenous domestic demand.

They then bravely take a completely different tack, saying “but it’s hard to sell them because of China’s tariff on U.S. soybeans.”

If the lead assertion were true, they wouldn’t have to wander off in that other direction. The Chinese are of course in on the massive shell-game, and their tariff is chaff that attempts to confuse the few bewildered sheeple who pay any attention to soybeans.

The article goes on to say that “U.S. soybean production is forecast at nearly 4.7 billion bushels, up 2 percent from August and 7 percent from last year.”

Can you see how they said “up 2% from August” so they’d have a smaller, meaningless statistic to put in front of the eye-popping “up 7% from last year”?

The article continues “The national yield is pegged at 52.8 bushels per acre, up 1.2 bushels from last month and 3.7 bushels better than last year.”

Adhering to the worldwide news blackout on the subject, they provided the numbers, but carefully hedged by omitting the percentages, as providing them would have been much more impactful. So I had to do the math.

Exactly as previously, they used “up 1.2 bushels from last month” so they’d have a smaller, meaningless statistic to put in front of the eye-popping “3.7 bushels better than last year”?

It’s a 7.5% increase in yield, juxtaposed against a 7% overall increase. So the “increased areas under cultivation” ruse, used in the story below from Argentina, cannot be used. In fact, I’ve just proven scientifically that the entire increase is based on the increase in yield, with none of it based on cultivated area. I’d add that the Argentinians are also having the largest soybean harvest in history, with no mention of “ravenous domestic demand”, or the mean old Chinese. They instead run with the “increased areas under cultivation” ruse, and remain otherwise tight-lipped. Neither article mentions the stunning fact of all the other record soybean harvests occurring worldwide – that’s a propaganda technique called “compartmentalization.

An increase in yield in the U.S. heading toward 10%, in just one year? What’s driving it? There’s no mention of special new genetically-modified seed driving the phenomenon, so that excuse is out the window.

Having covered the macro level, let’s look at the micro. “Iowa soybean production is forecasted at 590.4 million bushels, up nearly 10 million bushels from last month and more than 24 million bushels higher than the previous record set in 2016, according to the crop production report. The average yield is projected to tie the all-time-high at 60 bushels per acre. Favorable August rain and temperature led to a 1-bushel-per-acre increase from last month.”

Did you notice that they hedged by using the general “more than 24 million bushels” instead of giving you a specific number? As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda.

And they hedged again by giving you the numbers, but carefully omitting the percentage increase between them. So I had to do the math.

Using a flat 24 million, we see that soybean production in Iowa is up 4.2%, to the highest level in history, from 2016, which was the previously-highest number in history. And the yield numbers are also the highest in history.

A third article below is headlined “French Champagne makers see stars aligned for record harvest.”

They’ve said “stars aligned” to carefully imply it’s a rare, exceptional occurrence – to deliberately obfuscate the record harvests of all sorts that are taking place worldwide.

The article continues by saying “winegrowers are bringing in grapes early this year for a harvest they expect to be one of the best in a decade.”

If it’s only one of the best in a decade, why does the wine expert say shortly thereafter that “We have never experienced this before in the Champagne region, in terms of quantity and quality,”?

That’s because the article doesn’t simply tell a half-truth, but rather blatantly tells an outright lie, and hopes that you don’t catch it.

The article continues: “Champagne wines are expected to see a sharp rise in production, up 56 percent from last year to 3.5 million hectolitres, after several years of unsatisfying crops due to bad weather.”

The word “sharp” is almost never used in connection with an increase, but is rather used to describe drops. It’s just another bit of Black magic spellcasting, here.

Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime, and the assiduous, worldwide propaganda campaign to rebut that truth is one of the things that’s going to bring down the foul cabal of genetically-related “One Percenters” who’ve been running the con on humanity all the way back to Babylon, and before.

If you haven’t already done so, please consider distributing simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices where you live and work today, and possibly consider publicly posting about your efforts here on this blog.

 

 

August 25 2018 – French Champagne makers see stars aligned for record harvest

In the hilly region of Champagne in eastern France, winegrowers are bringing in grapes early this year for a harvest they expect to be one of the best in a decade.

Champagne wines are expected to see a sharp rise in production, up 56 percent from last year to 3.5 million hectolitres, after several years of unsatisfying crops due to bad weather.

“We have never experienced this before in the Champagne region, in terms of quantity and quality,” said Jean-Marie Barillere, president of the Champagne houses’ union.

“This will enable us to put into cellar amazing wines which will be on the market in three years,” he added.

 

September 12, 2018 – SOYBEAN RECORDS FALL AS U.S. HARVEST BEGINS

U.S. soybean farmers will harvest a record crop to feed ravenous domestic demand, according to government projections released today.

After months of retreating prices and bad news due to the ongoing U.S-China trade war, Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) leaders welcomed today’s mostly positive U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) numbers that led to an 8-cent increase in soybean prices.

“I think it’s encouraging from a producer’s standpoint the market went up a little based on a report that didn’t have many changes,” said Lindsay Greiner, a Keota farmer elected as ISA president last week. “Maybe the market has hit bottom. We’re going to work hard talking with new customers and strengthening relationships with existing ones to find a home for all our beans to hopefully keep prices moving upward.”

(Price rigging. An 8% increases in prices is not “a little”. Why the increase, when nothing’s changed, and Chinese consumption has dropped? Price rigging.  – ed)

U.S. soybean production is forecast at nearly 4.7 billion bushels, up 2 percent from August and 7 percent from last year, according to the September USDA Crop Production Report. The national yield is pegged at 52.8 bushels per acre, up 1.2 bushels from last month and 3.7 bushels better than last year.

(They carefully said “7% from last year”, to avoid saying “up 7% from last year.” It’s barely grammatically correct, and any honest editor would have caught it. – ed)

Iowa soybean production is forecasted at 590.4 million bushels, up nearly 10 million bushels from last month and more than 24 million bushels higher than the previous record set in 2016, according to the crop production report.

(There, they omitted the “up”, and put “higher” on the end, to avoid the more-impactful “and up more than 24 million bushels more than the previous record.” It’s spin, it’s careful, it’s tireless, and it’s very discernible. – ed)

The average yield is projected to tie the all-time-high at 60 bushels per acre. Favorable August rain and temperature led to a 1-bushel-per-acre increase from last month.

With combines ready to invade fields, ISA Market Development Director Grant Kimberley said the soybean industry faces a big challenge marketing the crop given China’s 25-percent tariff on U.S. soybeans implemented on July 6. It has essentially halted sales to the country.

(When has a combine ever “invaded” a field? It’s a queasy, highly-negative spin on a natural environment booming and burgeoning to a level ever seen in any of our lifetimes. – ed)

The ISA board of directors last week approved $50,000 in soybean checkoff funds to help the U.S. Soybean Export Council put on a soybean marketing event in Europe, bringing buyers and sellers together later this year. Similar efforts are planned in Southeast Asia and elsewhere.

 

September 26, 2018 – Argentina: A 126 MMT record harvest is expected this season

Buenos Aires, September 26th. This week, the Buenos Aires Grain Exchange (BCBA as its Spanish acronym) launched its first estimation on 2018/19 national harvest. Estimation Chief Esteban Copati said that they are seeing an increment in the planted area, to a record of 33.5 million hectares. The double-crop wheat/soybean is one of the largest contributors to this expansion year versus year.

(What is “an increment”? Why is it stated generally, vs. specifically documented? As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda. – ed)
