The food crisis on the horizon?

After the stock market price of maize increased from June through 40% (also similar to wheat, etc.) are not only the investment community begins to wonder whether we are on the brink of food crisis. The cause of the massive drought in the Midwest and western United States destroying crops and basically at the beginning of July here in Chicago could not go outside leisurely or longer than 20 min. Without the man was dehydrated and exhausted. According to meteorological forecasts, companies will probably neteplejším July for 117 years.This week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture in its regular report forecast decreased domestic production by 12% and the 2012-2013 estimate of closing stock by 37%!

So it will be interesting to see how the market will develop if shed come any further adverse production estimates.
