    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.

    Canada feeds European corn appetite as tariff war shrinks U.S. sales

    By Rod Nickel and Michael Hirtzer WINNIPEG, Manitoba/CHICAGO (Reuters) - Canadian corn is flowing into Europe at the fastest pace in four years, helped by retaliatory tariffs against the United States by the European Union that has shut American corn out of the bloc, traders said. Corn shipments to western European countries rose 85 percent year over year during the nine months from the start of Canada's corn marketing year on Sept. 1, and are on pace for a total of 1.2 million tonnes in 2017/18, the most since 2013/14, according to Canadian government data. Canada, the fourth-largest wheat shipper, accounted last year for less than 1 percent of the world's corn exports.

    Nigeria’s deadly pastoral attacks are hurting the potential of an agric-powered economy

    To wean Nigeria off its dependency on oil export revenue, Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari has often suggested turning attention to agriculture. Young Nigerians have been urged to take up farming and investors have been urged to back them. It’s a sound plan on paper: large-scale agriculture, or rather agribusiness, could reverse spiking unemployment and possibly…

    Attacks in northern Mozambique kill 39 since May -report

    Attacks by armed groups in northern Mozambique, where huge gas reserves are being developed, have killed at least 39 people and displaced more than 1,000 since May, Human Rights Watch said on Tuesday. Violence first broke out in Mozambique's northern province of Cabo Delgado in October last year, with local residents reporting gangs armed with machetes attacking police stations, torching villages and executing religious leaders. The United States embassy last week advised its citizens to leave the province after attacks increased in a region where Anadarko Petroleum is beginning to develop a $15 billion liquefied natural gas project.
