  17. "How has your portfolio in soft stoxx or ETF’s been doing in the last couple of weeks? So much for global fundamentals unrelated to Biofuels? Look at the nose bleed again of wheat, down 30% from peak chart. " oh Md have you not heard of the old saying in a bull run buy on the dips i would have thought that you would have known that the graph in a bull run never goes straight up was it not you that forecast a record breaking crop this year well then you will find these little titbits very comforting a leading climatologist reckons the mid west is due its 20 year drought! The threat of a drought this year in Iowa and the Midwest was addressed by ISU Extension climatologist Elwynn Taylor. "Sixteen of the last 17 droughts started in the southeast United States," Taylor said. "South Carolina experienced a serious drought this past year. If you look at patterns established over the last 100 years, there is a good possibility that we're heading into a period of below-normal rainfall." Taylor said a severe drought on the order of that experienced in 1936 could reduce corn yield to 110 bushels an acre from the 160-bushels-per-acre yield projected for the 2008 crop year. "If the weather is fairly normal, with today's hybrids and crop management we could have a 170-bushels-per-acre yield," he said. "So my forecast for the year is a yield of between 110 bushels and 170 bushels per acre." Taylor said Iowa and the Midwest are currently experiencing a La Ninia weather pattern that began on Dec. 25. Such a pattern typically produces higher than average rainfall. Taylor said 2007 resembles the weather Iowa experienced in 1987. The following year, 1988, was the last year of severe, widespread drought. and the UN is very concerned about this little fungus! 5 March 2008 – A dangerous new fungus with the ability to destroy entire wheat fields has been detected in Iran, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reported today. The wheat stem rust, whose spores are carried by wind across continents, was previously found in East Africa and Yemen and has moved to Iran, which said that laboratory tests have confirmed its presence in some localities in Broujerd and Hamedan in the country’s west. Up to 80 per cent of all Asian and African wheat varieties are susceptible to the fungus, and major wheat-producing nations to Iran’s east – such as Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan – should be on high alert, FAO warned. “The fungus is spreading rapidly and could seriously lower wheat production in countries at direct risk,” said Shivaji Pandey, Director of FAO’s Plant Production and Protection Division. He urged the control of the rust’s spread to lower the risk to countries already impacted by high food prices. Iran has said that it will bolster its research capacity to tackle the new fungus and develop wheat varieties that are rust-resistant. Called Ug99, the disease first surfaced in Uganda and subsequently spread to Kenya and Ethiopia, with both countries experiencing serious crop yield losses due to a serious rust epidemic last year. Also in 2007, FAO confirmed that a more virulent strain was found in Yemen. The agency appealed to countries to bolster disease surveillance and step up efforts to control it. still confident are we? did you not say in january that house prices would stagnate this year would be 2009 before there was a correction if any! at the same time time did you not tell us that there was no inflation! how right you were, NOT! rock on!

  23. hi sohia we were talking about producing electricity not hot water! yes it works DTI figures state that it will produce %70 of the average homes hot water at a cost of aprox £5000 for the average house if you have a south facing roof still need a boiler for the other %30 though of your needs i would strongly suspect in your student accomodation there was a large gas boiler quietly humming away in the background or perhaps students need less hot water than the rest of us! rock on!
