    If consumers boycott palm oil products it could lead to more deforestation

    Palm oil can be found in food and cosmetics everywhere: in fact, half of the world’s population uses palm oil in food. But public awareness about the loss of wildlife through deforestation caused by palm oil crops is growing, and there’s mounting pressure on retailers to reduce their sales of palm oil products, or boycott…

    As China soy demand wavers, U.S. farmers turn back to grains

    Since the mid-2000s, North Dakota farmer Paul Thomas has planted more of his land with soybeans as China's demand for the oilseed grew. The shift culminated this year when Thomas planted 1,600 of his 5,000 acres with soybeans - the most ever. The change will reverse a trend that saw U.S. farmers plant more acreage this year with soybeans than corn for the first time in 35 years.

    China, Brazil and the Future for U.S. Corn

    Thanks to research, corn yields are staggeringly high -- typically more than 170 bushels per acre -- and is used in a mind-boggling array of products, including to fatten livestock, as well as to make high fructose corn syrup, ethanol, and plastics. "Adverse weather in South America and lower planted acres have been pushing corn prices up along with a huge growing demand base for Chinese corn-based ethanol," says Shawn Hackett, a frequent commodity commentator and president of Hackett Financial Advisors. Talk of a trade war between China and the U.S., and uncertainty over NAFTA has taken some wind out of its sails.

    Business Highlights

    Talks to keep Canada in a North American trade bloc broke up Friday and will resume next week as the United States wrangles bitterly with its long-time ally over the protected Canadian dairy market, U.S. attempts to shield some drug companies from generic competition and other issues. President Donald Trump notified Congress Friday that he plans to sign an agreement in 90 days with Mexico to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement — and hopes Canada can brought on board, too. To understand why the impact of President Donald Trump's tariffs could be felt throughout the United States, consider this: From the West Coast to the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico, at least 10 percent of imports at many ports could be hit by new tariffs if Trump's proposals take full effect, according to an exclusive analysis of government data by The Associated Press.

    U.S. wheat growers have Trump's ear on old Canada trade gripe

    CHICAGO/DEVILS LAKE, N.D., Aug 31 (Reuters) - Gordon Stoner, who grows wheat in Montana about a mile from the Canadian border, would like to sell his wheat to grain elevators in nearby Saskatchewan. “When I cross the border, my wheat is automatically treated as feed wheat," said Stoner, referring to a Canadian grain classification. The label translates to a deep discount: Saskatchewan grain elevators this month were paying about 30 percent more for premium-graded wheat used to make breads and pasta versus feed grade wheat fed to animals.

    Heatwave ravages European fields, sending wheat prices soaring

    PARIS/MOSCOW/HAMBURG (Reuters) - Searing heat has devastated wheat fields across northern Europe while a combination of dry conditions and extreme rain in the Black Sea have hit output estimates, with prices soaring on fears of further crop damage. Evidence of serious harm to crops is growing as harvesting heads north in Germany, the European Union's second largest wheat producer, and in Scandinavia, prompting further cuts to estimates for the 28-member bloc. "The situation is catastrophic in northern Europe," Strategie Grains head analyst Andree Defois said on Thursday.

    Tullow shuts down Kenyan oilfield operations due to unrest

    Tullow Oil (TLW.L) has stopped work at its Kenyan oilfields and halted trucking operations after protests by the local community disrupted a transport scheme, its chief executive said on Wednesday. The British company aims to produce the first oil from the $2.9 billion Kenya project by 2021, which would open up the country's oil industry to exports. Kenyan media said the protests were to demand the deployment of more security forces in the area, which has long been plagued by banditry and cattle rustling.
