Major food shortages are unfolding due to a mix of factors, including war, climate change, fertilizer prices and poor crop yields.

In the past few weeks there have been numerous articles that outline the dangers facing humanity, but it’s generally going unheeded by most people. Not farmers however, they are acutely aware of what is happening.

In the US, Lake Powell near Las Vegas, Nevada has dropped to unprecedented levels. Water levels are now “critical” for millions of people in the Southwest that depend on this water supply. And it’s only May with a long, hot summer still ahead.

A lot of this water would be designated for crop production, but it’s unlikely to happen anywhere near the same scale as before.

Higher temperatures also mean lower nutritional yields, not just from lack of water or lack of fertilizer, but nutrition, specifically protein drops as temperatures increase. Wheat is particularly sensitive to this issue, the world’s staple crop.

Food prices have already skyrocketed and are climbing still higher.
