Why do we eat the same varieties of #fruits & #vegetables worldwide? Why do nearly 50% of our calories come from the same three crops: #wheat, #rice, and maize? What led to such a homogenization of our diets? #Food around the world used to be characterized by specific local and regional varieties of crops, providing a #diversity of tastes, textures, diets, & nutritional value. Underutilized crops (UCs) or forgotten crops are less common species, landraces, cultivars, or heritage varieties whose use, production, & consumption is currently limited. Despite their current depreciation, they boast a long history of cultivation in many parts of the world & hold great nutritional & environmental promise for the future of our food systems.
Abandonment of diverse varieties undermines food security. Malnutrition is linked to a lack of diversity on our plates & the shrinking nutritional value of our daily meals." https://www.resilience.org/stories/2023-11-14/the-policy-paradoxes-of-underutilised-crops/

Is #wheat breeding your thing? How about #crop #plant #evolution? In a new #JIPB paper, Yang et al. reveal a paternally imprinted transcription factor that contributes to paternal-excess interploidy hybridization barriers in wheat.
Wheat is grown in 42 of the 50 American states. 63 million acres of land there is dedicated to wheat production. The top wheat producing state is Kansas.
10 things you might not know about wheat:
#Harvest progress slowed across #Missouri as we entered November, with #corn and #soybean harvest now in line with year-ago pace while the #Bootheel's #cotton harvest is five points behind last year. However, winter #wheat emergence is now ahead of pace, with stronger conditions compared to a year ago.
Viele afrikanische Länder haben Weizen vor allem aus Russland importiert. Rwanda versucht, Weizenmehl durch Süsskartoffelmehl zu ersetzen. Es gbt auch bei uns Brot mit Kartoffelmehl. Mehl jenseits der Brotgetreide hat auch Vorteile. Das Mehl der Ackerbohnen verbessert z.B. die Haltbarkeit von Brot. Wenn Müller mit kleiner Mühle überleben wollen, müssen sie neue Quasi-Mehle in ihrer Versuchsbäckerei testen. Als Schüler war ich auch Tester.

American #wheat shipments fell to a 20 year low, hampered by a shrinking #MississippiRiver and competition from ample global grain supplies. Virtually no wheat has left the US via the Mississippi River, according to the USDA.

"Farmers are concerned about winter #wheat emergence
Unusually dry weather speeds harvest along, but has farmers concerned about wheat emergence this fall."
This morning on WIBW's Ag Issues program, I visited with Doug Bounds, the state statistician for #Kansas with #USDA's National Ag Statistics Service. In addition to this week's #harvest update, we touched on recent crop production reports and highlighted USDA's work in keeping track of the state's #wheat production.
#Farmers were provided with #biofortified wheat seeds. Nearly half re-cultivated the #wheat in the next season. The main motivators were the perceived quality of the #grain, wheat & #flour.

Sonora #wheat is a medium strength (10–12% protein) heirloom variety, supposedly the first wheat introduced to the New World by Spanish colonists. It’s currently grown in small amounts in California. It’s super tasty, and adds a ton of depth to all-wheat loaves. https://www.capaymills.com/shop/zdfivrk7vmltod6trbt5yy4mzq3wkn

#Argentina's #wheat yields in 2023 were also the worst in many decades. USDA forecasts already imply about 10% below trend for 2024, likely because it is still dry. #ElNino doesn't always produce strong Argy wheat harvests. 2016 crop was very "meh" despite huge El Nino.

The history of a local campaign to get people to eat more wheat in the past that failed.
"The “Eat More Wheat” campaign began in 1967 during a time when there was a global rice shortage. [...] However, many people found it difficult to make the switch. As a reporter with the Eastern Sun newspaper noted, rice-eating was a “centuries old habit” and “we have been rice eaters since as far back as we can remember”."

Van Gogh painted this in Auvers-sur-Oise, in northern France. The scenery is very late summer/early autumn to me, with the harvest coming in. Mists and mellow fruitfulness and all that.

#NZ Folic acid in bread wheat
“As of tomorrow, all non-organic bread-making wheat flour in New Zealand will be fortified with folic acid.”😊😊😊
It’s taken too long; good to see NZ get there.

So, like, how many of you out there have tried to grow your own food. Like all of your food. #Rice, #Wheat, #Soybeans, etc. I've tried and it's not EASY! Have you thought about what you would eat if grocery stores were closed? Foraging isn't easy either. And imagine if we were all foraging at the same time... Not pretty.
Scientists warn of crop failure ‘uncertainties’ as Earth heats up
Increasing concentration of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere is putting the planet in ‘uncharted waters’ as weather extremes intensify.
4 Jul 2023
"A new study has highlighted the possibility of major harvest failures caused by climate change in multiple global breadbaskets as the United Nations warned of a 'dystopian future' without immediate action."
by Apeksha Bhateja | July 5, 2023
"Climate change is touching every aspect of human life. It may not be responsible for every disaster, but climate change is making extreme weather events more frequent and intense. Turbulence is getting worse. Cities are sinking. Droughts and floods are forcing people to flee their homes. What else? Food, of course.
Although food prices are affected by many factors—economics of the country, supply-chain, inflation, oil prices, wars and conflicts—climate plays a major role in production and it has started to sting. More than 345 million people face severe food insecurity in 2023 and crop failures due to floods, droughts, and other extreme weather events are making things worse.
My latest article for the local paper, out this week to wrap up June, talks about common #wheat #beer styles and local breweries who create them. For the article I picked up a growler of Heffen N’ Peffen Hefe from #KoboldBrewing, brewed in the German style.
"Known as the granary of #China, the south of #Henan was struck by higher-than-normal #rainfall in the last week of May, days ahead of the #harvest of #wheat planted last winter. The rains have caused some grain to sprout or be hit by blight."
This is what #ClimateInflation looks like.
"Winter #wheat is planted in the fall, goes dormant in winter cold, then gets harvested in early summer. The study found that the #ExtremeWeather conditions that would push those wheat crops beyond their physiological tolerances are becoming more likely. If such weather affected multiple regions at once — a scenario possible in today’s climate — it could stress the global #food system in dangerous ways. "

U.S. winter #wheat abandonment at 32.6% this year is pegged to be the highest since 1917 and second highest on record.
There were clearly great difficulties during the 1930s and1950s in growing winter wheat, which was then as now, produced mainly on the central and southern Great Plains.
H/T Brad Rippey @usda_oce
Some of the #Kansas wheat is bluish from lack of moisture. #Drought has left many of the #wheat plants short and damaged. The USDA has forecast that the abandonment rate will likely be the highest since 1917. 🌾
Abstract: "There are currently various concerns regarding certain environmental toxins and the possible impact they can have on developmental diseases. Glyphosate (Gly) is the most utilised herbicide in agriculture, although its widespread use is generating controversy in the scientific world because of its probable #carcinogenic effect on human cells. Gly performs as an inhibitor of 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phospate synthase (EPSP synthase), not only in plants, but also in bacteria. An inhibiting effect on EPSP synthase from intestinal microbiota has been reported, affecting mainly beneficial bacteria. To the contrary, Clostridium spp. and Salmonella strains are shown to be resistant to Gly. Consequently, researchers have suggested that Gly can cause dysbiosis, a phenomenon which is characterised by an imbalance between beneficial and pathogenic microorganisms. The overgrowth of bacteria such as #clostridia generates high levels of noxious metabolites in the #brain, which can contribute to the development of neurological deviations. This work reviews the impact of Glyphosate-induced #intestinal dysbiosis on the central nervous system, focusing on emotional, #neurological and #neurodegenerative disorders. A wide variety of factors were investigated in relation to brain-related changes, including highlighting #genetic abnormalities, #pregnancy-associated problems, #diet, #infections, vaccines and heavy metals. However, more studies are required to determine the implication of the most internationally used #herbicide, Gly, in behavioural disorders."
The production outlook for the U.S. winter #wheat crop is the lowest in recent years for parts of the Great Plains, with USDA records dating to 1986. One grower in southwest #Kansas expects to abandon 85% of the crop due to #drought.

Sometimes simple is just better. As the sun was setting the heads of wheat were catching the last of the fading light. Interestingly, wheat is the most harvested crop in the world

The majority of the #wheat in the #Texas Panhandle will not be harvested as it simply cannot recover. The wind and sand storm earlier this year severely damaged or completely destroyed many wheat fields. Pastures remain very dry as summer nears.
I prefer to bake #wholeGrain bread. Whole grain bread is tasty, contains important vitamins, fibers, and minerals, and it's also very satiating. Of course I also bake with #sourdough, which helps keeping the bread fresh.
#Mischbrot is probably the most popular kind of bread in Germany. Normally, it's made with a blend of #wheat and #rye, and it's traditionally baked with #sourdough. It has a grey crumb. It's not as soft as wheat bread, and also not as chewy as rye bread.
So as you might guess, one of my favourite breads is *whole grain Dinkel-Mischbrot*. I bake it with a sourdough (consisting of one part of spelt and one part rye, and some starter) at 75% hydration, and two additional parts of spelt and rye in the main dough. The overall hydration is 80%. Because half of the flour is pre-fermented, fermentation & proofing of the main dough is quite fast (only 2-3 hours at room temperature), which makes it a very practical recipe. In this particular bake, I added #olives while shaping the bread. The bread bakes for 20min with lid, and 45 min without lid, at the maximum temperature of my toaster oven (230 °C).
