Official reports says global opium production has dropped by nearly half this year. However, it's nothing to do with the war on drugs, but a poppy eating virus in Afghanistan - the world's largest exporter. Still experts warn against celebrating any kind of victory over the killer crop. Opium prices have nearly tripled, while poppy fields are still the same size. The heroin-producing harvest is the main source of income for Taliban militants. They retain a stronghold in the drug-rich southern provinces of Afghanistan, despite a massive NATO effort. And the drug issue is effecting the fight against crime and corruption. That's because, as RT's Paula Slier reports, many Afghan police are among the addicts. UN experts warn higher opium prices could persuade Afghan farmers to cultivate even more opium. Wheat - the main alternative crop for farmers - has fallen in price, while poppy eradication is at an all-time low. Still, Zulmai Afzali, a spokesman for the Counter-Narcotics Ministry, insists growing drugs is against the Afghan people's beliefs.
EU Ministers in charge of Agriculture meet on Monday 27 September to hold an exchange of views on the freedom for Member States to decide on the cultivation of genetically modified crops. Sabine Laruelle, acting Belgian Minister for Agriculture and Science Policy, explained in a press conference that there were many questions that arose in the statements made by delegations to understand the implications of the additional powers that would be granted to member states. She also said that there were very clear positions expressed in one direction or another and added that a consensus would not be easily find in the next months. Commissioner John Dalli was confident that the approach proposed by the Commission is a balanced one because it does not undermine the internal market and it is not in contradiction with the WTO rules.

This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Report, from voaspecialenglish.com | http When farmers and wild animals share land, conflicts can be hard to prevent. But the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization is trying to help. The FAO and other groups are developing what they call the Human-Wildlife Conflict Mitigation Toolkit. This toolkit is a collection of advice and information that farmers in southern Africa have been testing. Wild animals are considered a top problem for the physical and economic security of rural populations in Africa.FAO official Rene Czudek says the main aim is to provide low-cost methods to deal with wild animals without harming them. For example, some farmers in Kenya use donkeys to guard against lions and cheetahs. In Zambia and Mozambique, crocodiles are blamed for more deaths than any other animal. Nile crocodiles kill an estimated three hundred people each year in Mozambique alone. Strong fences at watering areas can offer protection. And people should always enter the water several at a time, in groups armed with weapons like sticks and stones, axes and spears. But the FAO also points out that crocodile attacks are less likely in places that have not been overfished. The toolkit also has ideas to control baboons. These large monkeys raid crops and they can kill sheep and other livestock. One suggestion is to remove the center from a loaf of bread and hide a snake inside -- a live one if possible. Baboons have a fear of snakes ...
A quarter of Russia's grain crops have been destroyed by the unprecedented heatwave and wildfires. The government is planning to spend more than a billion US dollars to help producers. It's also imposed a ban on wheat exports to avoid a surge in domestic grain prices, which is expected to be lifted in October. But this has already caused a global wheat price spike.
Russia's unprecedented heatwave rages on, with Friday seeing another record-breaking temperature in Moscow. The hot weather has caused the worst drought in years and hundreds of people have drowned in lakes and ponds as they desperately try to cool off. With no immediate end in sight to the high mercury readings, RT's Tom Barton explains the impact of the heatwave and how people are coping with Russia's tropical weather.

This is the VOA Special English Agriculture Report, from voaspecialenglish.com | http Farmers in Haiti plant about sixty percent of their crops in the spring. But this spring is a struggle with disaster. The January twelfth earthquake flattened much of the capital and surrounding areas. It left more than two hundred thousand people dead and about a million homeless. International recovery plans include helping Haiti expand food production. But now seasonal rains do not make the situation any easier. The rains continue through May and June. Farmers in the quake area lost tools as the shaking caused landslides that buried equipment. Also, many farmers need money for seeds and fertilizer. And Sabine Wilke of the aid group CARE says many lack the money to hire help to prepare the land. "For the planting, they also need local labor," she says. "And since they do not have enough money to hire people, the work will simply not be done." The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization said it has delivered tools and seeds to thousands of families in the quake area. The earthquake was centered near Port-au-Prince. An estimated six hundred thousand people left for the countryside. Experts say it will be difficult to feed them. Food prices are high, and many people fled the capital with only the clothes they were wearing. Gerald Murray at the University of Florida is an expert on Haiti. He says many rural families have taken in relatives and friends who lost homes and jobs ...

uk.asiancorrespondent.com Farmers in the Australian outback are facing a potential crop disaster as locust swarms sweep across farmlands. Billions of the insects have swarmed south into New South Wales, after already rampaging through Queensland earlier. Some sections of the swarm have already reached Melbourne and parts of South Australia. Research at Oxford University has identified that swarming behaviour is a response to overcrowding. As the locusts bump into each other their serotonin levels increase, causing them to change color, eat far more, and start breeding more rapidly. It is estimated that the largest swarms have covered hundreds of square miles and consisted of many billions of locusts. This particular swarm has already damaged wilting crops, which have been afflicted by years of devastating droughts. The costs of the damage is expected to run in the millions.

Who? What? Why?! Some say man made maybe HAARP or Scalar energy, some say ET, and some say the Earth (Gaia) herself produces these wonderful geometrically perfect crop circles... This years season is only days away - what will it bring? No one claims to make these crop circles - and those that do never show how they can... Electromagnetic fields, right angled stems that seem to have been heated from the inside out (much like a microwave), and peculiar growing patterns of the crops effected - some stay year round even after the harvest imprinted like a tattoo... One theory is the Earth produces these vibrations that appear in specific areas that lay along 'energetic grid lines' that the Earth naturally has... Another is these are messages from our cosmic brothers and sisters, just to say "Hi! We're here!" - or to actually help balance the Earth with positive energies that replenish a lot of what we take of her... One thing is for sure - no one has ever been caught in the process of making one - no one has come forward and claimed making the 'real' crop circles, and no one can explain exactly why they are made in the first place... So sit back, relax and enjoy these two videos - the first is in chronological order of the real crop circles that appeared, and the other is crop circle spins (one to bend zee mind a little - and even help expand your conscience).. Download all the crop circle images & Swirlies 0.3 here: thepiratebay.org Enjoy! :)

Crop Circle and 9/11 Evidence -Iron Microspheres, Levitation Is there a connection? Soil Effects in a Canadian Circle BLT Research have a study on the soil in a crop formation which was found in Sept 1999 EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA The fact that the field was infested with Canadian thistle, which made it almost impossible to walk in the field without high protective boots, tended to further rule out the possibility that this formation had been mechanically produced. The full study is available online, www.bltresearch.com Clay minerals (illite/smectites) extracted from surface soils taken at the same sampling locations as the plants, were submitted to X-ray diffraction analysis. The results were submitted to Dr Robert C.Reynolds, Jr. In Reynold's words, "the possibility of crystal growth seems remote." The degree of pressure known to be involved in causing crystal growth in sedimentary deposits would have, had it been present, completely obliterated the plants. And the 600-800Ā°C temperatures, over a period several hours, known to be necessary to promote such crystal growth in the laboratory would have, in the crop circle field, incinerated any plant material present. Additionally, the very brief bursts of possibly intense microwave radiation thought to be the cause of node-elongation and the creation of expulsion cavities (through heating and expansion of internal stem moisture) could not account for crystal growth. This is interesting because we seem to have evidence of ...

PLAYLIST: www.youtube.com Crop circle investigator Bert Janssen shared his theories about the enigmatic formations seen in fields. He's concluded that it's humankind's "collective consciousness," possibly from the future or past that is creating the designs. He also discussed a witness to the formations, who described seeing a ball of light floating over a field, and this ball transformed itself into a pancake shape, before the crop circles appeared.
