"With the rest of the eu germany band single use plastic products last weekend's in an effort to better manage its plastic consumption. The bioeffects disposable products such as single use cutlery and plates drinking straws stirrers and cotton buds but here ups biggest economy produces more than six million tons of plastic waste annually and some germans continued to embrace a so-called throwaway culture. So we'll the ban really make the impacts. That environmentalists are hoping for in munich. Naturally carney has been finding out. Well i've just been to the supermarket in an attempt to see if it was possible to buy what i needed in non plastic packaging overall. It was not i mean. We do need plastic for something such as my toothpaste here but many of the other items did come in plastic wrapping. I really don't think are that necessary such as these carrots here. For instance and these apples i mean. When did we start. Packaging are fruits and vegetables. So i'm curious to see how much of this plastic will still be on the shells once. Germany starts to ban some single use plastics. Germany is a good starting point as the country produces more plastic waste than any other country in the european union and according to many different studies close to half of all that waste is from consumer packaging in fact upwards of twenty percent of the trash collected in our parks and other public spaces across germany consists of single use plastics. More takeaways more ready made meals the ease. This packaging brings our lives has led to a fifty percent increase.

I don't with around thirteen thousand ant species worldwide. There comes a lot of variety. They range from smallest less than one millimeter long to over fifty millimeters or two inches. That's the aptly named titanic mira gigante so weights vary too but experts seem to agree the average weight of an ant is less than ten milligrams but even among experts. No one really knows how many aunts there are in the world. A bbc documentary claims. There are not ten trillion ants but one hundred trillion though it still suggests that the total weight of the ants equals the total weight of humans. Even by the author's own math their calculations are wrong. If we estimate that the seven point two billion humans on the planet weigh a combined three hundred and thirty two billion kilos or three hundred sixty six million tons and ten thousand trillion aunts weighing an average of four milligrams. Each we get only forty billion kilos or forty four million tonnes or about nine pounds of human for every pound of ants even if we allow for the smaller human population in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and the smaller humans. It's still back of napkin. Math at best one expert does say that the numbers might have inaccurate at one time. Probably about two hundred and fifty years ago. We must also remember that. Humans are getting fatter all the time. We're not just increasing in population we're increasing in fatness. So i think we've left the ants behind another way to try to wrap your head around.

"Joe Camporeale revisor joining is in the studio this weekend good to see answer good day Max I had I don't I don't see helmet here so I don't think you rode the motorcycle but you did take a a quite a few days out of the bike this summer to check on crops didn't you that's right four wheels on the road this morning but I had two wheel trip two weeks I touched ten states starting in Illinois and moving east into the ravaged areas of northeast corn belt and we came back into Illinois up in the Wisconsin Iowa down into Missouri even poking and Nebraska on back in the Illinois so got a good look at the central Midwest this summer what stands out in your mind in retrospect looking back at that as you know you continue to hear from growers what's going on as we look at weekly crop but it is what stands out two things one is the very ability of this crop we've heard that term but I'm bouncing around a lot lately but it's a stark contrast to the previous two years when consistency was the name of the game and it was that consistency across the corn belt than in twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen allowed US producers to achieve record national yield averages for the corn crop that's one thing the very ability of course the eastern corn belt very different than the last and then even in the western corn belt whether some chord good crops we're seeing the variability across you know two sides of the same road so very ability for one and the next thing is that even good corn looks good but I have this feeling writing many miles afterwards thinking to myself the corner looks good looks good for a month ago and that just goes to show you how delayed this crop is that has been the lingering impression that we've had even in recent days you know when you drive by some of the field as we are starting to see some harvesting going on what kind of reports are coming in from the combine cab do you in these these early as field openings that have taken place in some of really gotten into the harvest in earnest in. in a few locations what are you hearing unfortunately some disappointment now we'll say it's very early yeah I mean we we we talk about in Illinois the crop being less than five percent harvested but we're starting to get more indication of what's out there and what is that we should see of for the most part some of these early yields translated to some silage cutting but once we get into some of the better crops hopefully we see an improvement and these yields but the early going a some disappointment there even relative to expectations which were tempered this year coming in the harvest is it likely though that yields will get better as this harvest goes on and says some of us are wondering about that it seems to be the adage of big crowds getting bigger also applies and vice versa that is that small crops get smaller from the sense that in September we saw the USDA analysts start to move lower on their corn yield estimate the same thing for soybeans we feel like that's a trend we might continue to see we're not gonna see drastic reductions we don't believe nothing like we feared early in the season but we can see a downward trend of for these USDA yield estimates as we start to get in the field and realize that the very ability just won't allow us to have a quite the trend beating crop that we've enjoyed in the previous couple summers these warm days of September sure have been welcome haven't they yeah we look at the two week outlook and it looks as if this will prolong summer will continue but it's biased towards the eastern corn belt we do see up in the north west some areas of concern for that early frost freeze threat we know there's several million acres at risk corn not having reached maturity yet and so if we get into this weekend and start to see some sub a thirty degree temperatures in states like Minnesota or North Dakota we're gonna be back to thinking about just how really this harvest could could and for us we've seen in recent days very little movement in prices what's it going to take care I mean. is is even a frost scare going to light up this market at all not just yet I don't believe that might help in courage the bulls to do some buying but let's wait and see for all traders whether you're bullish or bearish the speculators aren't willing to take a big position on a directional but one way or the other and the farmer not having any interest in selling at these levels and so not being a big market participants with that being the case what we expect is that we can S. have a trade that stays somewhat stagnant until we get fresh data the first opportunity for that would be Monday when we have a grain stocks report small grains summary and also a chance for the US did update its production estimate for the soybean crop last year so data would help that would follow up with the next October report we would expect big revisions to acreage and then other than that I mean that's the supply side we're just simply waiting on a more harvest results on the demand side waiting for progress on these many traded deals still open particularly of course US China back to that offer October crop report in that October clapperboard you expect to see significant acreage revisions we better would sure expects though because USDA coming in August and leaving and September the harvested acres as a percentage of planted on ninety one point one percent that's a normal year let's let's use some discretion here and start to a pick away at the harvested acres knowing that we're going to have failed acres that we're gonna have to take out ample corn that was planned for silage and just generally cover crops for both corn and soybeans remember the government allowed those to to be planted this year on that demand side we have seen some China's soybean purchases is this what they promised to buy and what we were told they would be buying and many months ago so far there are living up to their most recent promise which was to do some buying in front of the next round of face to. face negotiations I'll take place in early October they have an estimated buying interest of about six million tons here maybe even up to ten million of before this group next meeting or during these negotiations and we have seen those sales as you mention here in the recent days starting to stack up finally to will to what was committed to a couple weeks ago forcing some trade negotiating progress we got the word of a the deal with Japan this week of course they are a very good customer they have been here in a year out I think we are the the top soybean supplier for them supplying about two thirds of what they buy from the world do these tend to act in courage you think a positive outcome of that the Chinese stocks they may but whether we're talking about US Japan or even US MCA nafta two point now we still got to get these deals to the finish line and we continue to see announcements that a deal is is is agreed to but you have to put it into effect you have to implement and to do that we have to get it through our legislators starting with US MCA but same considerations can be made for China for Japan and and for and for other countries that will be looking to renew our deals with the fact that we've got to put it to the finish line and that takes a coordinated effort not just of by the president's administration but of course by Congress to you talked a little bit earlier about the exports and there's some other purchases taking place and we've seen a stronger dollar of late and that doesn't help does it no not at all the dollar is a safe haven play for investors that are skittish because of things like brexit going on so for could coming out of the euro and the pound currencies in into the dollar for a flight to quality type move any also have the dollar rising because it's your short term treasury rates interest rates are firma also a safe haven play when you've got uncertainty invest. to do around the world they're gonna come into the US market want to pick up US bonds and other US investments will they need dollars to do that the dollar has been rising towards multi year highs and that hurts exports makes our grain more expensive to world buyers expressly when you have our dollar moving higher not only against the currencies in the hands of our customers but in the hands of our competitors to so we look at the south American currency is the Brazilian reality Argentine peso there at multi year lows that makes their goods less expensive to the global buyers and crowds are exporters out of the market unfortunately judging by your response a little bit earlier when I ask you about a creature and a an adjustment in October I eggs sins that you share the view of a lot of farmers about how you STA is handled it numbers this year number one has there been irreparable damage done to the the image of USDA with its report the number two does it matter. I believe there has been damaging yes there was frustration whether or not it matters we'll have to see if there can be any change carried out in the wake of what was a almost I'd call the calamity this year was starting with that August report I know it's an unprecedented year so we have to cut some slack to the government analysts but we know they use discretion to to to release these numbers and they had a room and my mind to leave the corn yield unchanged for example coming into that August report given the fact that they've come into this year saying that even in a normal year we're not gonna put our crop scouts out in the field until September because it's just too early in August to tell all was it too early to tell and and this August I'd say absolutely so and into some argument it's that okay it's only the output of our former surveys in our our weather just to train models that's fine but I'd say look at the soybean number which deck came and August unchanged did those of producer surveys and the weather just to try and produce the exact same the the soybean bustle to to the tenth of a a bushel or or did they use their discretion to leave it on change and and should they have done that with corn yes and then on the acre side not necessarily the acres as a whole which the FSA as since you know for the most part proven but the harvested acres as a percentage of the total I was just the hard to reconcile for us you think USDA will be sensitive to this do you think they will listen you know they they routinely I guess have a user's conference where they're they ask for input but what's your sense about this obviously if it's their numbers that matter no matter how much the private trade how much you analyst want to come out with with your own estimates at USDA numbers that really matter at the end of the day I think so I think they were working to. increased transparency we saw that there is a supplemental report following the August numbers that sort of truth up what was coming from the FSA with those nasty numbers and that's the effort that we need is just a push towards greater transparent parents in the methodology used for those reports Joe it's good to see you thanks for coming in thanks so much Joe camp with AG revisor. those.

"The fruit from over ripening, but then came steamships and railroads. They just put huge pieces of ice at each end of freight car to try to keep the bananas, cool, and by the nineteen twenties trains, started getting mechanical refrigeration in the nineteen thirties came refrigerated trucks, this new technology at huge impact on food distribution generally made possible the modern meat industry. For instance, it also allowed for the bulk importation of bananas to the United States, the variety that Americans came to know and love was the grow Michel, also known as big Mike. And it was a large banana and it had thick skin. So it didn't bruise easily. There are more than a thousand banana varieties in the world. But Jenkins says a lot of other banana varieties. Don't travel. Well, either they're small or they have been skins, or for one reason, or another didn't grow well in one thousand nine hundred Americans were eating fifteen million bunches of bananas, a year, just a decade later forty million. So it was very bad news. When a fungus emerged devastating the plantations in Latin America, this fungus came to be called Panama disease. It was I noticed in the eighteen hundreds by the nineteen fifties. It was wiping out the grow Michel. And so what the fruit companies did was they move onto another country by a lot more land and groping in until the disease caught up with them and they had to move on. But the disease couldn't be outrun. The grow Michelle was doomed. So they changed to provide a call the cabinet banana, the Kevin dish was not susceptible to the disease. Wiped out the grow, Michelle. So the Kevin dish is the banana most of us eat today. It accounts for ninety nine percent of the banana export market, the last grow Michelle's in the US were sold in nineteen sixty five. So our banana is not the same banana, our elders. Eight, I've never had a grow, Michelle not old enough. So I'm not really sure how much difference there was some people who did eat the grow, Michelle say it was more, delicious than the cabin dish. But the Kevin dish has done very well. Thank you. It is the most popular fruit in both the US and Europe, even though the vast majority of them must be imported, the EU imports around six million tons of Cavendish bananas each year or one hundred ten bananas per person, the US about one hundred thirty bananas per person Candida pizzas, both with a hundred fifty bananas. So you can imagine there would be a lot of unhappy people. If. The banana we all were once again under existential threat. Well, the doomsday scenario is that it wipes.

A vote Cannock bet on surprisingly, it turns out, that's not a technical term, Mike Burton of all canola. Just we've been talking to the university of Manchester in the UK says we should talk about a short term episode of volcanic activity instead, he spent seven years, working at mountain in Italy Europe's most active volcano to produce Aetna is very large. Gosh, ommission in the context of volcanoes. We're talking about six million tons of to pay six million tons, by the way, is six billion kilograms monk reminds us, this isn't just happening during eruptions mountainous. Always releasing. Guess a process known as de guessing, for reasons that I probably don't need to explain. In fact, the amount of co two emitted during guessing dwarfs that of short term volcanic episodes such as eruptions. So we've discovered that whether it's not mountain was producing a serious amount of carbon dioxide, even by the standards of volcano. But how does that compare to emissions caused by human activities, manmade carbon dioxide emissions, are far higher than anything mount EDNA produce? And what is it that humans are doing to create all those emissions? Here's Dr Laura Wilcox of the university of reading in the UK we tend to split down by sector..

"For a look at crop progress, and whether there and for that we always turn to Dr Michael cordona gay who is the expert on crops and weather in South, America and Justice. Warning he came up with an estimate on the Brazilian soybean crop. He lowered by two million tonnes this week to one hundred nineteen million. And that's because of the dry weather. He goes on to say one of the impacts of the hot and dry weather during December has been an acceleration of soybean maturity in many of the dry areas. Farmers are reporting that the soybeans are maturing twenty to thirty days earlier than end -ticipant in Brazil. That's because of the hot and dry conditions and resulting in small seeds and irreversible yield losses. The corn estimate for Brazil lowered by a million metric tons to ninety four million and the Argentine soybean estimate unchanged at fifty six million tonnes the meetings that I've talked about for US farmers. There's an important one coming up. We got word today from farm progress companies that the Environmental Protection Agency regulations for two thousand nineteen require all applicators of Kemba herbicide products to complete the campus specific training. And that's even if you took it last year, but you can register now to complete the printing requirements while you're at the firm future summit or at the boot camp participants completing the training will receive a certificate following the session. And again, you can get more information on those meetings by. A farm progress companies at farm futures summit dot com, and that's your money on seven hundred twenty WGN. Seven.
