Wet weather killing U.S. field crop production

DENVER, the United States, May 31 (Xinhua) -- If rain falls on U.S. Midwest farm belt this weekend, as predicted, "catastrophic" 2019 might get worse, farmers in the country fear.

"Farmers are facing an unprecedented situation thanks to the ongoing trade war, river flooding, and record-setting rain this spring," the Illinois Farm Bureau posted Wednesday.

On Friday, AccuWeather, a U.S. media company that provides commercial weather forecasting services worldwide, predicted showers on Saturday and Sunday for much of the Heartland -- across 1,000 miles (1,600 km) of farmland stretching from Texas to western Pennsylvania.

"Showers and locally severe thunderstorms will erupt and rumble across parts of the Midwest and the central and northern Plains ahead of a press of drier air into this weekend," AccuWeather posted Friday afternoon.

TERRIBLE TIMES

"2019 is turning out to be a nightmare that never ends for the agriculture industry," Seeking Alpha.

"We have never had a year quite like this before, and U.S. food production is going to be substantially below expectations," the Indiana Farm Bureau posted this week.

"I very much encourage everyone to get prepared for much higher food prices and a tremendous amount of uncertainty in the months ahead," they added.
